As 2016 draws to a close, it is the perfect time to reflect on the past year. We have had a big year here at The Injury Control Council of WA (ICCWA), with a number of organisational changes as well as major developments in our three main program areas; Stay on Your Feet®, Road Trauma Support WA and Know Injury.
Stay on Your Feet® has had a very positive and eventful year, with some new faces joining the team as well as the continued promotion of the Stay on Your Feet® Move Improve Remove messages. This year saw the release of two new campaigns, Make Your Home Safer and Strengthen Your Legs which ran throughout the year. Both campaigns had a wide reach and were well received among community members and health and community workers.
Looking towards the New Year, the Fuel Your Body campaign will be launched on the first of February 2017, with a number of great events and activities planned.
The Stay on Your Feet® team will be taking a short break over the festive season and our office will be closed from Friday 23 December 2016 to Tuesday 3 January 2017.
We would like to thank each and every one of you, whether you are a community member or professional working with older adults, for supporting Stay On Your Feet® throughout 2016. It has been a pleasure having you on board and we look forward to another year of preventing falls among older adults in the community.
From all of us on the Stay on Your Feet® team, have a safe and happy festive season and a lovely New Year.
