Why Liverpool City Council got involved
Liverpool City Council is committed to improving the health of residents, workers and visitors to Liverpool. Council resolved at the 23 December 2013 Council meeting to start the Live Life Get Active in Liverpool.
Overall, people in Liverpool engage in physical activities less than other people across NSW. Healthy nutritional practices are also lower in Liverpool. There are more people who go to hospital for smoking, obesity and diabetes issues in Liverpool than other areas of the state. Council is facilitating
the Active Camp to encourage greater health awareness and promote healthy ways of living.
