We have a range of programs designed to create a healthy and empowered mob.

Ready Mob

Want to give up smoking for good? Here at Galambila we have a regional Tackling Indigenous Smoking Program – Ready Mob.

The Ready Mob team have been providing early intervention, education and resources to schools, communities and events within Gumbaynggirr, Dunghutti, and Biripai Nations.

The program focuses on reducing smoking rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Ready Mob are also a referral option for anyone wanting group quit smoking support. Staff are located in Port Macquarie, Kempsey and Coffs Harbour to ensure the program is delivered across the region.

Spring into Shape

Starting as a joint initiative on the Mid North Coast Area Health, the Spring into Shape program improves the lives of those that have been diagnosed with some form of chronic disease.

The aim is to deliver a weekly exercise and nutrition 12-week program to promote a healthy lifestyle and to help manage stress in a better way.

The program offers a safe, fun and supportive environment to participants in a range of activities, including cooking classes with a qualified nutritionist, some gentle workouts and health information sessions with a personal trainer over the duration of the program.

You will need to complete a Health assessment and be referred by one of our doctors to be a part of this fantastic program.

Elders Day Health

Elder’s Health Days are held on the third Monday of every month at the Coffs Harbour Botanical gardens from 10am to 2pm. This day is all about bringing together Aboriginal Elders to discuss a range of healthy lifestyle topics in a safe and fun environment.

Each month services from within the region are invited to come along to discuss what they can offer to the community. Transport is also available to ensure our Elders don’t miss out. For further information please call our friendly reception team. (Feel free to change).
