Healthy communications that achieve sector-wide impact


House of Kitch’s origins are in the Health and Wellbeing sector. It’s where we cut our teeth on evidence-based behaviour change communications to achieve sector-wide change. In fact, before founding House of Kitch, Samara Kitchener worked within the NSW Ministry of Health leading preventive health campaigns for HIV, blood-borne viruses, overweight and obesity, and tobacco and was an advisor to the World Health Organisation. Our Chief Storyteller, Victoria Mackinlay, was a sales manager for medical instruments at Stryker UK. Through our extensive experience, we’ve seen the positive impacts on individuals and society as a whole and have received multiple awards across the health communications space. 

House of Kitch has worked across all areas of health, wellbeing, biotechnology and health-tech using creativity, science and ‘out-of-the box’ thinking to deliver communication strategies, integrated campaigns and employee value propositions.

Some of our work includes:

  • Creating campaigns for NSW Health in overweight and obesity, HIV, blood borne viruses, tobacco control, immunisation and preventive health. 

  • Driving a large clinician, board and patient stakeholder consultation program to develop a 10-year strategic plan for the Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health Network. 

  • Developing a purpose and positioning approach for the Australian Cardiovascular Alliance (ACvA) to bring the cardiovascular research sector together to prioritise and align research efforts to deepen the impact of cardiovascular research.

  • Delivering a vision and engagement plan to reposition the Bathurst Health Service.

  • "Partnerships for Healthy NSW” project for NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet which involved developing framework options to enable government to develop external partnerships with private and non-government sector to deepen and extend the reach and impact of current government initiatives on overweight and obesity.

  • Developing programs and content to support patients through fertility and IVF journeys.

HOK is an approved supplier on the NSW Government Pre-Qualification Scheme for Performance and Management Services and the Federal Government Department of Human Services Creative & Digital Communication Panel.
