ABORIGINAL health workers will again be working in Kwinana after the council program received funding for another 12 months to help the town’s indigenous population.

The Town of Kwinana has hired health workers Vanessa Winmar and Natalie Little, who last week began working on the program which aims to promote the physical well-being and improve lifestyles while reducing the risk of chronic conditions such as diabetes.

The pair have already begun running a number of programs, including boot scooting at the Kwinana Recquatic centre on Tuesday nights.

Other programs include Zumba classes, healthy cooking workshops and a mothers and daughters health day, which will be run soon.

There were also plans for regular walking groups during summer.

All the activities in the program are free. Ms Winmar and Ms Little are available on Monday and Wednesday on |9439 0422.
