Live longer! mobile training van

 

Overview

Aboriginal training organisation Tauondi College, with project partners the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia and South Australia Health, set up a Live longer! mobile training van project which aimed to help prevent chronic disease in Indigenous communities across South Australia by providing free two-day training courses in healthy eating, nutrition and horticulture. The caravan visited 21 Indigenous communities.

Training graduates were encouraged to link in with their local Aboriginal community controlled health service to receive ongoing health checks, healthy lifestyle advice and support. They also worked together to create a cookbook that contained traditional and contemporary recipes that are healthy, practical to make and use locally available ingredients.
