Join Our Volunteers Who Are Preventing Falls In Their Local Communities

Tai Chi is popular across Australia and around the world as a regular exercise to promote independent living and to prevent falls.

The Southern NSW Local Health District Population Health Team has coordinated the Physical Activity Leader Network for 10 years and is looking to attract an additional 20 volunteer leaders. This will enhance the program further and ensure classes are running in communities where there are limited options for older people to participate in falls-safe activities. Tai Chi leaders state the experience of volunteering as a leader of the program is a rewarding one and encourage more people to do the same in their communities. There is plenty of support offered by Population Health in the way of further training, and administration support. Training for new leaders will be held over two and a half days from the 11 May to 13 May 2018 in Batemans Bay, at the subsidised cost of $50. This covers the course, accommodation, meals and program resources. Registrations for new leaders close 2 March 2018. For more information on becoming a leader in your community and to be part of this exciting program, please contact Natania Copp, Health Promotion Officer on (02) 6150 7546 or email
