ActiveSmart BBQ and Forum
ActiveSmart is a program aimed at increasing sport and recreation opportunities for individuals with a lived experience of a mental illness. The program also aims to increase the capacity of sport and recreation groups to provide a welcoming, inclusive environment to increase the mental health of their community.
Through ActiveSmart, Inclusion WA is working with Richmond Fellowship and Perth Home Care in a mentorship capacity. The aim of this partnership is to work directly with the staff to increase their ability to educate and motivate the people they support to increase their level of physical activity and community connectedness.
ActiveSmart is also working in a mentorship capacity with several sporting clubs within the City of Melville and the City of Gosnells to help them implement initiatives they feel will improve their community and create a more welcoming and inclusive environment.
To celebrate the success of the program so far, we are hosting a community forum to bring together people who are interested in supporting inclusion in the community they belong to. We will hear from some keynote speakers, including a sporting club that has increased their community connectedness. There will be opportunities to share individual experiences and learn from others. The evening will conclude with a game of lawn bowls and a BBQ.
Hope to see you there!
