Working together to change our future
Our core principle is to work together to create better options for people living with overweight and obesity. We bring people to the table to break down the silos that exist between professionals, organisations, and people living in larger bodies. Because by working together we are able to motivate each other and make the most of limited resources. Most importantly, together we can make changes across the different areas that impact a person’s life.
We understand that everyone has an important piece of the puzzle. And it is only together that we can leverage the information, access, innovations and resources that each person and organisation has.
A critical part of genuine collaboration is keeping the voice of the person impacted by overweight and obesity at the centre of everything we do. Their voice, stories, and desires keep us focussed. It helps us challenge the way health and care have always been delivered. And it helps us work for better person-centred outcomes. It ensures we don’t lose sight of the outcomes we need to deliver.
The WELL Collaborative members are working on a number of projects to improve the health and wellbeing of people impacted by overweight and obesity.Check out our impact
“Start treating people who live in larger bodies like human beings. It is not easy being told every day that you are a burden on the health system and will face an early death just because you have more flesh than someone else. Don’t assume everyone who is in a larger body is unhealthy, and vice versa.”
