The HOP (Healthy Outreach Program)

About the HOP

The Healthy Outreach Program (the HOP) is a pilot program offering services and activities to help people wanting to begin healthier lifestyles and who may not usually access mainstream services. The HOP aims to provide social, fun, and accessible activities with support in place to help people get closer to reaching their goals. The HOP is running from 2nd March 2021 to the 30th June 2021.
We hope this pilot program will inspire enough participation to attract ongoing funding and support.

How does it work

People can get involved with a range of health lifestyle programs available across the Fremantle and Melville areas.
All programs are FREE and people on Centrelink benefits are encouraged to take part.
A choice of involvement levels is available.

Get social!
