In late 2017, The Plug-in community shared their experiences about health and wellbeing in the northern suburbs to help shape a new precinct, Healthia, which will be developed next to the Lyell McEwin Hospital.

An ACH Group development, Healthia, will offer apartments, residential aged care and disability services for residents in the northern suburbs, and partner with other providers to deliver services and facilities to the local community.

Throughout 2018, our Plug-in Influencers have worked with ACH Group to understand what is important to the community in terms of health and wellbeing, open and built space, and the programs and services that will be offered there in future.

Phase 4 of the project will commence in January 2019 with an opportunity to provide input into the Health Studio 50+.

If you access (or support someone to access) health, aged care or disability services in the around Playford, Salisbury, and Gawler regions, the Plug-in would love to hear from you! We would also like to hear from people from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds, so if you know of an individual or community group that would be interested in participating then please let us know.

Participants will be asked to contribute via focus groups and 1:1 interviews, and will be offered a $25 gift card to thank them for their time.

If you are already registered as a Plug-in Influencer, please contact us at if you would like to be involved in this project, or call us on 8224 5582.
