THRIVE (acronym for Transforming Health Relationships Innovation Vocation and Education).
It is a partnership of key stakeholders in Break O’Day.
Following a community consultation undertaken by St Helens Neighbourhood House in partnership with Break O’Day Council and St Helens District High School in September 2014 a framework for action was developed that provided solutions to issues identified by our community in relation to improving Year 12 outcomes.
Not surprisingly issues identified with low year 12 results were across a spectrum of social determinants to health such as Transport, Employment, Early Childhood, Food Security, Lifestyle Choices, Mental Health, and Environment and so on.
St Helens Neighbourhood House in partnership with Break O’Day Council, St Helens District High School and LINC Literacy Services entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for the purpose of a shared commitment to work collaboratively in mutually beneficial activities in the interest of furthering the shared vision of an active and connected community empowering Break O’Day people to lead meaningful lives and create successful futures.
We work collaboratively and extensively with a number of major key stakeholders and service providers such as St Helens District Hospital, Hub4Health, St Marys Community Health Centre, to name but a few who support and assist the objectives and goals THRIVE is endeavouring to achieve through their commitment and participation in a number of THRIVE’s programs.
