Webinar 2: Connecting to secure healthy food for all West Australians: Food Stress Index – A world first 

Come and learn about Western Australia’s strategic response to food relief and join us to address the challenge of food insecurity. The WA Food Stress Index is a unique innovation that has underpinned a major part of our approach. This is your opportunity to find out how the Food Stress Index can pinpoint the potential of food stress in households in specific neighborhoods and regional areas works.

This webinar was held in partnership with the Public Health Advocacy Institute, Curtin University.



Webinar 3: The care economy

Care work has a crucial part to play in Western Australia’s social and economic recovery. An investment into the care economy is an investment into quality public and community sector jobs. If areas like care work are not included as part of WA’s economic recovery efforts, the very real risk is run that we will inadvertently extend or further entrench that wage gap and fail to address growing need.


Webinar 4: Social Isolation and Wellbeing

Social exclusion, loneliness and mental health have been exacerbated by COVID, and people and groups already living with hardship and adversity are more likely to have been impacted during the shut-down. This webinar will be a chance for WACOSS to hear from the sector about your observations and experiences of social isolation on the children and families that you support. We will ask for your input about how we ensure that vulnerable and at-risk households are at the heart of social recovery.



Webinar 5: Regional, place based and community wealth building

Social and economic recovery in regional Western Australia should be driven by community-based programs and initiatives that are created and sustained locally. Place-based solutions, particularly in regional and remote areas, are better able to develop effective and comprehensive responses to complex issues. Community wealth building is a systems approach to economic development that creates an inclusive, sustainable economy built on locally rooted and broadly held ownership.

Social determinants of Health Webcast Series

There is widespread evidence demonstrating the relationship between the health and wellbeing of an individual and the environments in which they are born, grow, live, work and age. Factors such as employment, housing, education and social support can work to strengthen or destabilise the health of people and their communities. These factors are referred to as the social determinants of health (SDoH).

In partnership with Health Justice Australia and Social Futures, the Social Determinants of Health Webcast Series aims to create a shared language around SDoH.
