Link Health and Community strives to provide our community with a wide range of services suitable and accessible to all members of the City of Monash and beyond. We provide these services throughout our 14 locations, delivered by our 185 qualified staff and 183 willing volunteers. We have a long and rich history stretching back to the formation of the Waverley and Chadstone services as separate community health services in the early 1970s.

Health promotion is the process of helping people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. Social inequality means there are people in our community who are more likely to experience poor health and early death. Health promotion aims to address the underlying causes of social inequality to improve health.
Link Health and Community partners with other organisations and our local community in health promotion initiatives to:
- Develop people’s ability to improve their own health
- Support policy and action that creates supportive environments for health
Our current health promotion projects cover:
- Food security
- Social Inclusion
- Prevention of violence against women
Link Health and Community engages with schools to improve the health of children, young people and their families.
We developed the Link Healthy Schools Network to provide information to schools about health and wellbeing issues.
