Working in partnership is an integral component of the Healthy Cities approach.
HCO had a strong partnership with the Fleurieu Cancer Network, planning many events together and sharing resources.
The City of Onkaparinga provides an elected member representative on the management committee and has supported HCO through competitive grants and in kind resources. Council has produced a Community Plan 2008-2028 and associated strategies for Climate Change, Water Futures and Transport. We believe the Community Plan provides a visionary blueprint for the future of our City and reflects shared goals of environmentally sustainable growth, increased health, wellbeing and connectedness, equitable prosperity, community participation and leadership, and cooperation/partnership between all players in government, non-government and private sectors. HCO proposes a closer partnership with the City of Onkaparinga as a way to strengthen opportunities to achieve our shared goals.
We continue to work with Southern Local Health Network and the Adelaide Primary Health Network.
The partnership with Flinders University in providing the Healthy Cities and Communities Short Course has contributed to the development of Healthy Cities nationally and internationally, particularly in the Asian and Western Pacific Regions.
Healthy Cities Onkaparinga also works with a variety of other local community groups and individuals on locally relevant issues.
