The Quit B Fit team is funded by the Australian Government to deliver the Tackling Indigenous Smoking program, as part of the Closing the Gap initiative.
The focus is health promotion, awareness and prevention program to provide Indigenous people with tools and resources to live healthier lives without smoking cigarettes.
The Quit B Fit team covers a large area of New South Wales incorporating the Central West, Far West and New England regions.
Quit B Fit are asking our mob to step up and pledge their support to help make a difference in our communities by making their homes and cars smoke-free zones.
The team regularly takes their important health promotion messages on tour to all parts of the region it covers with a particular focus on indigenous communities. The tours include community participation, cultural awareness, entertainment and positive role models on how to live a healthy life without the smokes!
Deadly Choices’ is a campaign which aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices for themselves and their families – to stop smoking, to eat good food and exercise daily.
‘Deadly Choices’ also encourages our people to access their local health service and complete a ‘Health Check’ – not just to see the Doctor when they are sick but visit their health service and access support to prevent or better manage their chronic disease and remain healthy. The aim of ‘Deadly Choices’, to support our communities to make a ‘Healthy Choice’ – to make a ‘Deadly Choice’.
The Quit B Fit team delivers the Deadly Choices program into schools across the region working with young indigenous students to provide them with information and tools on how to make healthy and positive choices about their emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
The Quit B Fit team has developed an ambassador program with the support of some high profile NRL players and clubs.
The Melbourne Storm and Many Warringah Sea Eagles have partnered with the program in 2017 to help promote the important Tackling Indigenous Smoking message.
