Positive Ageing Strategy 2016-2025

This Positive Ageing Strategy promotes the many opportunities that an ageing population brings to society and the vast benefits for individuals and the community when people continue to be active, healthy and participate in the community as they age.

Living Our Lives 50+ years hopes to activate opportunities and choices to improve wellbeing for people as they age and to achieve a positive change in the way residents live their lives.

The Strategy has eight strategic focus areas:

  1. Friends, connections and a welcoming community
  2. Active – socially, mentally, physically
  3. Learning and sharing knowledge
  4. Getting around
  5. Informed and having a say
  6. Feeling safe
  7. Housing, employment and financial security
  8. Health and support services when required

Through a series of Action Plans, Council will try to continuously improve the wellbeing of older people across the eight focus areas.
