Partner with us

Working together to make healthy happen.

Our approach to partnering

Great things happen when we work together, when many are involved, and we are all part of the solution.

We will listen, explore connections and share insights, because we are stronger together. We will carry out our work with open eyes, ears, doors, hearts and minds. Building lasting change starts with building trust.

We will support the health promotion activity, capacity and direction of our partners by providing access to resources and expertise to scale-up and leverage evidence-informed and innovative approaches.

Together, we can make life better for all Queenslanders.

Our partnership values

Partnerships built on mutual values.

Strong partnerships rely on solid values and foundations. Here are some of the things we value when building new partnerships.

Collaboration

We believe we are stronger together. We are keen to partner with others who, like us, have a genuine commitment to shared ownership, decision-making and co-investment. We are passionate about making a meaningful and lasting impact on the health and wellbeing of Queenslanders but know this will only be achieved by collaborating with and leveraging off each other, through trust, and by building on all the good work that has come before and taking it to the next level.

Evidence-informed

We care deeply about our work and want every step we take together to maximise real and meaningful outcomes. This is why we rely on reliable and rigorous evidence and guidelines to inform what we do and how we invest. We see opportunities in new ideas that build upon established knowledge and we are keen to partner with organisations that are committed to creating and sharing knowledge.

Learning

Across Queensland there are many great initiatives underway to reduce obesity and unhealthy weight. We are eager to partner with communities and organisations that are making a difference, to deepen understanding and continue to improve what we do and how we do it.

Openness

Openness and transparency are essential to making our shared vision a reality. We, like our partners, are open about our opportunities and challenges and will share our learnings, including what hasn’t worked, in a timely way.

Authenticity

We live and breathe this agenda. We strive to embody health and wellbeing, including being a workplace that promotes health. We want to partner with organisations which also have a commitment to health and consider what they can do within their immediate sphere of influence and with the community.

Partnering with us

We are keen to partner with others who, like us, have a genuine commitment to shared ownership, decision-making and (importantly) co-investment. We are looking for partnership opportunities that are mutually beneficial, can be actioned rapidly and deliver impact at scale. The stakes are too high to settle for anything less.
