Creating an age-friendly community
Council has been fortunate to obtain funding from the Victorian Government to explore opportunities with the community about how to create an age-friendly community where older people can work, live, play and feel as a valued member of the community.
Age-friendly communities support older adults by designing policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environments that help older people to live safely, enjoy good health and stay involved.
In the near future we will be contacting various community groups to seek assistance:
- To identify projects that assist older people to remain active and connected to their communities
- To obtain feedback on issues pertaining to older people
- To identify Age Friendly Ambassadors who would help to drive programs to be implemented
If you have any interest in becoming involved and/or becoming an Age-Friendly Ambassador, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Council’s Age-Friendly Community Project Officer on 03 5722 0762.
