The Stay On Your Feet® program awards three $5000 grants for each campaign to help support community focused programs aimed at addressing the campaign key messages. The Fuel Your Body campaign awarded three grants – to GP Down South-Peel region, the University of Western Australia, and the WA Country Health Service Goldfields.
GP Down South will be delivering Stay On Your Mooditj Djena, which is aimed to support Aboriginal people over the age of 45 years by implementing a 12 week physical activity and nutrition program at the Nidjalla Waangan Mia health service. The program will additionally aim to link the local Aboriginal community with health service providers
The University of Western Australia project aims to reduce the risk of falls in older adults with advanced chronic kidney disease by interventions to improve nutrition as well as home-based exercise programs. The program will deliver six individualised programs to patients over a three month period.
The WA Country Health Service Goldfields will promote the importance of healthy nutrition through a three month radio advertising campaign. The radio messages will be targeted to people aged 55 years and older and will be based on the Fuel Your Body campaign messages.
Stay On Your Feet® is looking forward to hearing about the implementation of these nutrition and fall prevention programs. For more information on future Stay On Your Feet® grant opportunities, please visit the grants webpage.
