Do you currently run, or are you interested in running, a low-cost activity or program that promotes healthy lifestyles?
This is your chance to be part of a community program helping build Darwin into an active and healthy place to live.
The Healthy Darwin program offers a range of group exercise sessions and workshops across Darwin to help our community live a healthy lifestyle. It runs for two 6-month blocks, starting in April and October each year.
Activities and workshops, where possible, make use of Darwin's community facilities and open spaces, and are subsidised by Council to ensure participants only pay a small fee.
The Healthy Darwin Team invites service providers who deliver healthy lifestyle programs or activities, that meet the eligibility criteria, to apply to be part of this innovative, community-based program.
Applications are assessed in February and August each year.
Some examples of activities you could run are:
- Group fitness classes
- Cooking workshops
- Supermarket tours
- Meditation classes
- Healthy lifestyle education sessions.
The Benefits Of Being Involved:
- We will promote your organisation as a Healthy Darwin provider through various sources, including the City of Darwin webpage, Facebook page and other digital platforms, City of Darwin Libraries and Council's Vibrant Darwin newsletter.
- We will help* cover the cost of venue hire or permit fees (*this does not imply 100% of the fees)
- You will receive a set fee for service of $50 inc GST per class (including delivery, planning and set up). Participants will pay only $5 per class (direct to the instructor).
