Hume Healthy Kids


Hume Healthy Kids is a co-design project with children (0-12 years) and their families to deliver a program of activities to promote physical health, mental wellbeing, and social connection. The voices of children and families lead the program design, which is now being planned, rolled out and evaluated in Hume Libraries and school-based community Hubs, through a partnership with libraries and DPV Health.

The Hume Libraries Healthy Kids survey asked children to draw a picture of something the libraries can do that would help them be more active and move their body more, feel happier, and feel more connected to other people. These are some of the drawings(PDF, 6MB) we received.

This special project is due to funding from the State Library Victoria and Public Libraries Victoria, as part of the Libraries for Health and Wellbeing program, which was established in recognition of the key role that public libraries have in supporting the health and wellbeing of their communities.
