The HOP (Healthy Outreach Program)

About the HOP

The Healthy Outreach Program (the HOP) was a pilot program offering services and activities to help people wanting to begin healthier lifestyles who may not usually access mainstream services. The HOP provided social, fun, and accessible activities with support in place to help people get closer to reaching their goals.

The pilot program ran from 2nd March 2021 to the 30th June 2021. The programs had no cost so those on Centrelink benefits could take part and choose to commit to a set program or simply drop in to others.

How it happened

The HOP was made possible by Local Government and non-Government organisations working together with coordination by Cockburn Integrated Health and support from the WA Primary Health Alliance.

Still happening

Many of the HOP and other new activities are still available through the partner organisations.
