What is HAPI Ipswich?
The HAPI Ipswich project aimed to increase participation in physical activity and improve healthy eating amongst people not working full-time in Ipswich.

The HAPI Ipswich project was an Ipswich City Council initiative working in conjunction with four major partners;
How did HAPI Ipswich come about?
Ipswich City Council was awarded funding from the Federal Government's National Partnership Agreement on Preventative Health "The Healthy Communities Initiative".
The City of Ipswich consists of a higher than average proportion of disadvantaged groups at risk of developing chronic disease including obesity. The funding enabled Council to deliver the "Healthy Active People in Ipswich" (HAPI Ipswich) Project, specifically aimed at those disadvantaged groups.
The HAPI Ipswich Project built on existing programs and allowed a framework to be established for new programs to ensure that when they were established they were sustainable.
