About the Co-op

Health, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

The Victoria Health Co-operative (VHC) is a group of individuals, passionate about well-being for ourselves and our community. We include and welcome, as member-owners, all who are dedicated to their own health and the health of their families, friends and community.

We organize and support wellness programs for members and the wider community to empower and support individuals and groups to adopt healthy lifestyle practices and move towards well-being.
