High Performance at Home aims to help everyday Australians maintain their physical and mental wellbeing at home.
As the nation becomes increasingly isolated in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19, NSWIS staff are drawing on their expertise to create resources applicable to the wider community, with a range of content to be shared across social media, as well as being available at nswis.com.au/highperformanceathome.
