Strategy and plans
Our agency’s work is guided by the Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025
The Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025 was released in August 2020 and outlines our agency’s vision and five year goal, to lead the system change required to support health and wellbeing and embed prevention across the life course.
Development of the Plan was informed by more than 250 contributions from community members, non-government organisations, public health stakeholders and state and local government agencies, including through participation at workshops and written submissions.
The Plan provides a framework to support and enable a significant change in the policy and planning environment for prevention and wellbeing in South Australia. It also aligns with other existing statewide prevention policies and plans such as the State Public Health Plan 2019-2024.
Throughout the duration of the Plan, Wellbeing SA will focus on the Priority Focus Areas of:
- the early years
- mental health and wellbeing and suicide prevention
- chronic disease, integrated care and injury prevention
Implementation of the Strategic Plan
Implementation of the Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is underpinned by a population health approach and a series of Priority Focus Areas and Strategic Enablers including partnerships with the community and other stakeholders to achieve improved health and wellbeing outcomes for South Australians.
The Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025 Progress Report highlights the key achievements of the agency against the Strategic Plan from 1 July 2021 to 30 December 2021. The Progress Report demonstrates the significant progress being made to support improved physical, mental and social wellbeing for South Australians.
Key Wellbeing SA achievements in the July 2021 to December 2021 reporting period include the launch of the agency’s dedicated website, expansion of My Home Hospital and access to Priority Care Centres, extensive consultation with stakeholders on the development of key strategies including the South Australian Suicide Prevention Plan 2022-2025, South Australian Aboriginal Health Promotion Plan 2022-2025, Integrated Care Strategy and the South Australian Walking Strategy 2022-2032.
