Age Friendly Communities Program
Why have an Age Friendly Communities Program?
To encouraging active ageing by optimising opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. Adapting our structures and services to be accessible to and inclusive of older people with varying needs and capacities.
The Age Friendly Communities Program is now in its Implementation Stage and one of the objectives from the Action Plan is to ensure high quality, reliable up-to-date information is made available to seniors. In response to this action a Seniors' Directory has been developed, which includes information about:
- Local services – from meals on wheels, transport options, assistance in your home
- Parks and reserves – local areas and the facilities provided
- Cultural experiences – local places to visit
- Recreational activities – contact details of local sporting and community organisations
- Public toilet map
Copies have been mailed out to senior clubs and organisations and the most recent version is available for download on this page.
