Census of Population and Housing
August 9 is Census night. Our moment to pause and make a difference
The upcoming census is a valuable way for you to make sure that your region and community has access to funding from federal and state governments.
Census data is used by government departments to distribute funding to local and state governments to deliver services. Road, education and health funding is based on the participation of people in the census. It is also used to create electoral boundaries.
The Flinders region undercount in the 2011 census is estimated to be between 5.3% and 6.5%, this is a huge loss of income to local and state government coffers. It could mean that we have lost a teacher, medical personnel and important road maintenance funding for our region.
Given that the national average for undercount is less than 3%, and the undercount for the Brisbane region is less than 1%, our undercount and the number of people not participating in the census is cause for concern.
If you want to make a difference to our region – Please ensure that you complete the census.
Free ONLINE healthy lifestyle program for families with primary school children
The online version of the evidence-based healthy lifestyle program for families – PEACH (Parenting, Eating and Activity for Child Health) – is now taking registrations.
The PEACH Online program is FREE for Queensland families with a primary school-aged child and can be completed at home, in your own time, at your own pace.
It is designed to give families the information, tools and support they need to make healthy lifestyle choices, and covers common family issues such as:
• Making sense of food labels
• Portion sizes
• Dealing with fussy eaters
• Finding time to be more active as a family
PEACH Online has 10 interactive sessions, with introductory videos, activities, tools and links to recipes and resources. Families can take part in weekly ‘live’ online chats with the Project Dietitian, ask a private question, and also join the online group forum to interact with other families.
The PEACH program is run by the Queensland University of Technology and funded by the Queensland Government. It was launched state-wide in response to the high rates of childhood obesity, with one in four children in Queensland above their healthy weight.
Registration for PEACH Online is open until 31 August 2016.
Parents/carers can enrol by phoning free call 1800 263 519 or by visiting www.peachqld.com.au
