Make A Change Program

Improving health and wellbeing is often easier said than done. The hardest part, after making the decision that you need to make a healthy lifestyle change, is ‘how to’ and ‘where’ to get the support needed to keep motivated.

Make A Change program is a series of six weekly sessions of practical, hands-on workshops (and homework) filled with nutritional information, meal and menu planning, eating for health on a budget, skill development, managing barriers to change and physical activity sessions.

Make a Change program aims to provide support to help you along the pathways of change in a friendly, relaxed group environment. This program is run by a qualified Dietitian who is also an accredited fitness instructor.

This program has been shown to be quite effective in achieving better lifestyle choices / weight loss. The support from other participants, and knowing that they too are also struggling with the same issues that you are is reassuring. This support is a very valuable addition when learning new skills to make healthy lifestyle changes in relation to food choices and physical activity and change thinking patterns.

What is the cost?

The cost for all six sessions in $48.00. Total payment is due by the first session, but can be made in instalments.

Who is eligible to join?

All age groups welcome. People with chronic diseases, diabetes, pre-diabetes or weight problems are encouraged.

For 35 years, the communities of Mount Alexander Shire have known who to turn to when they need help.

Sadly, CHIRP may not be around to turn to in future.

Government funding has not kept pace with the rising cost of delivering community health services.
This is happening everywhere, but smaller rural services like ours are the hardest hit.

We need a commitment from the Victorian Government, so we can maintain our services
and not be forced to close our doors.

Support a community model of health and let CHIRP get on with delivering vital services for our community
