Join the new Barwon Women’s and Children’s Community Consultative Committee

Please note that the expression of interest to join the community consultative committee has now closed.

We’re calling on people from Geelong and surrounding communities to join a community consultative committee.

Community consultative committees help support the planning of new health infrastructure projects.

Their role is to:

  • provide feedback on local health needs and expectations
  • represent the community’s diverse views
  • comment on emerging issues, opportunities and priorities of the local community.

Join the committee to help shape the new Barwon Women’s and Children’s

The committee will be chaired by the Member for Geelong, Christine Couzens.

The committee will include:

  • representatives from Barwon Health
  • representatives from City of Greater Geelong council
  • a diverse cross-section of the community, to ensure local views and ideas are incorporated into the planning.

Expressions of interest to join the committee have now closed.

Learn more and apply.
