About the Campaign

Community Health Professionals play an essential role in Victoria’s healthcare system by providing podiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology and other services to local communities across the State.

Despite their important role, Community Health Professionals are not being treated with respect by their employers and have not had a pay rise for more than three years. In that time they have also been significantly disadvantaged in terms of professional development and other benefits.

The VHPA is actively working with its members to negotiate a long-overdue Enterprise Agreement for Community Health Professionals and win back the respect they deserve.
