In the past decade we’ve learned a lot about the role that employers can play in supporting their staff’s health and wellbeing. Modern, contemporary local governments realise the benefits that a proactive health and wellbeing program can deliver – improving employee engagement, productivity and reducing workers’ compensation claims.

Mental health issues are increasingly prevalent throughout organisations; 1 in 5 Australians are
diagnosed with a mental health condition every year (such as depression, anxiety and substance use).
The Scheme funded health and wellbeing program (HWB) enables all LGIS members, no matter their size, to deliver a HWB staff program. No matter your local government’s maturity in the HWB space, our resources, publications and tools can help to get you started or supplement current initiatives. By using these resources, you can be confident that you are providing the services your staff need and want, which is an essential component of a successful health and wellbeing program. Make sure you’ve reviewed the LGIS services and get the most out of your funding allocation.
We provide members with a range of resources and tools alongside funded services from our panel of preferred service providers.
