Working together to keep Australia happy & healthy

You are invited…

…to collaborate with Healthy Towns and actively encourage Gympie, Noosa and Sunshine Coast communitiesto enhance their overall health and happiness through the sponsorship of the 2017 Healthy Towns Awards.

How sponsoring the Healthy Towns Awards can help your brand

Healthy Towns is an opportunity for rural and regional communities to improve their overall health and happiness.

EVIDENCED BASED PROGRAM:
Current research demonstrates that initiatives developed locally, focusing on existing strengths and resources, are more successful in improving health and wellbeing outcomes. Research also shows that feeling a sense of connection to others, the natural environment and where you live is instrumental in creating improved health and wellbeing.

STRONG COMMUNITY VALUES:
The core values of Healthy Towns are making connections to increase happiness, utilising local assets and focusing on populations with greatest need. Involvement in Healthy Towns will align your business with these values and help build trust and rapport within the community you do business.

SUPPORTED BY REPUTABLE ORGANISATIONS:
This is a fantastic opportunity to support a growing program run and supported closely by reputable organisations including Central Queensland, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast PHN, University of the Sunshine Coast, Griffith University, Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council and Caloundra Community Centre.

MEDIA REACH AND BRAND RECOGNITION:

This opportunity offers increased reach and greater brand recognition, including the chance to be recognised as a leader in the health and wellbeing sector. Sponsorship provides direct communication channels for your key messages to consumers interested in community health and wellbeing.

By sponsoring the Healthy Towns Awards you will closely align these values with your brand, either reinforcing your brand’s ethos or repositioning your brand as one that promotes overall health, wellbeing and connectedness within communities.
