Welcome to The Wellness Coalition - Avalon East home on-line. The Wellness Coalition - Avalon East is one of six wellness coalitions in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Coalitions provide opportunities for people to become involved in community action around the issues that affect their health and well-being. Coalitions provide leadership, coordination and support for local wellness initiatives. They build partnerships by bringing together individuals, groups and organizations interested in working together on common wellness issues in their local regions. Activities may include advocating for healthy public policy, administering community grants to enhance local wellness projects, or developing and delivering community wellness programs.
The Wellness Coalition-Avalon East is supported by the provincial government through the Provincial Wellness Plan and the Department of Health and Community Services, and by Eastern Health.
