Local health and fitness providers needed for next term of Redlands Healthy and Active Program

Redland City Council has opened the Expression of Interest (EOI) process for local fitness providers who wish to be considered for the next term of activities in the Redlands Healthy and Active Program. Those who are passionate about helping people to be healthy and active are encouraged to get in touch before 2 March.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the first round of the program had been very successful, prompting Council to proceed to continue with the program.

“The Redlands Healthy and Active Program continues to have high participation numbers with on average 300-350 people utilising these programs across the city each week.”

“Redland City boasts wonderful open space and parkland and this program is aimed at encouraging residents to be healthy as well as enjoying our city’s wonderful open spaces.

“We look forward to welcoming qualified, experienced and motivating providers on board to deliver a physical activity program from April to June 2018.

“Activities should be low to medium intensity, suitable for all age groups and be able to be delivered in public open spaces.

To be considered, providers will need to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) by Friday 2 March. Application forms can be downloaded from the Redland City Council website or obtained by calling 3829 8999.

The Australian and Queensland Governments, through the Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, provided funding to Redland City Council to deliver the Redlands Healthy Active Program.
