The opportunity to provide feedback for the Women's Participation in Sport and Active Recreation in Melbourne's West study has now concluded. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Hobsons Bay City Council has teamed up with other Councils and organisations in Melbourne’s West to increase women and girls’ participation in sport and active recreation across the region.

Hobsons Bay, Brimbank, Maribyrnong, Melbourne, Melton, Moonee Valley and Wyndham City Councils, Women’s Health West and the Victorian Government, have finalised the Women’s Participation in Sport and Active Recreation in Melbourne’s West: An Action Plan for Change 2020-25 study which aims to improve women and girl’s participation in sport and create more gender equitable opportunities and environments in Melbourne’s West.

The plan identifies 48 actions that Hobsons Bay and other participating Councils will focus on to change the way in which women and girls’ access, participate and experience sport and active recreation.

The project has been supported by a $45,000 contribution from the State Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund and is led by Wyndham City Council.
