Healthy Change Challenge empowers people of all intellectual and physical abilities to make long term improvements to their health and wellbeing while having fun!
FACE TO FACE
How we roll
We provide a continually innovative, capacity building program run in 4 x 12 week blocks (Monday to Friday from 8:30am-3pm) throughout the calendar year called the "12 Week Challenge".
Be empowered to run cooking, shopping, mindfulness and exercise sessions in collaborative teams throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Region. CLICK HERE to see posts and photos of of daily activities our Challengers enjoy every day of the program.
Each 12 Week Challenge has a different activity theme and new experiences in line with Challenger's goals and interests to keep things fun and exciting! It's your program so let us know what will get you moving!
Challenge yourself at your level - we support all abilities to achieve great outcomes. In just 12 weeks Challengers improved across all fields of physiological and mental wellbeing testing conducted by the University of Newcastle.
We're an NDIS registered provider and NDIS participants require capacity building - social and community participation funding for the 12 Week Challenge unless they are self managed. Please get in touch for more information and a quote.

Our Team & Community
Make all the difference
We hand pick the best coaches, qualified trainers and health professionals in the community to capacity build the Challengers and run a quality boutique program.
Our team's culture and unique way of operating and supporting each another is featured as a case study in "Workplace Culture and the NDIS - A book for leaders in the Australian disability sector."
HCC is a social enterprise. 100% of non NDIS funding received from grants, donations and sponsorships reinvested back into the program.
"I can't believe I'm achieving so much in my life .... I've lost weight and I'm so honoured to be a part of the program. HCC has given my life back a purpose and motivated for me to do more and most importantly my mum is very proud of me and my dad would be too"

"My daughter has been attending Healthy Change Challenge for over 2 years. Our experience with HCC has been absolutely amazing. My daughter has gained so much in terms of her confidence and sense of self. She eagerly looks forward to everyday with the team at HCC!
