The Right Place

The Right Place supports people in the Huon Valley to find the services they need, when they need them.

The Right Place initiative was developed in the Huon Valley as one of several projects proposed by the community to improve integration and transfers of care for the community.

Look for The Right Place logo on member’s doors and windows – these members will help you find the health and community service information you need.

 

Huon Valley Council are proud to support The Right Place in the Huon Valley with funding from the Crown through the Department of Health.

The Statewide Right Place Program

Community consultation was a vital part of the 2015 Huon Valley Shared Transfer of Care project, which facilitated community, service provider and consumer consultation. This consultation identified specific local issues and potential solutions related to integrated care.

In 2019, the State Government’s Public Health Literacy program adopted the Statewide program with Huon Valley Council maintaining support to the Huon Valley community.

For Statewide enquiries please visit the State website for further information or alternatively contact contact Public Health Services:
