Draft Age Friendly Communities Plan

A Draft Age Friendly Plan has been developed and is based on research and engagement with our community and Council staff. The Plan is a renewal of the Age Friendly Communities Implementation Plan adopted by Council in 2019.

The Draft Plan was developed between August 2023 and February 2024. 197 people participated in engagement activities including online surveys, workshops with community groups, discussions with the Older Persons Advisory Committee (OPAC) and staff focus groups.

Council is now seeking feedback on the Draft Plan. Submissions close 5pm, Wednesday 24 April.

The Age Friendly Plan

Age friendly communities are places where older people live safely, enjoy good health and stay involved. Healthy ageing is the ability to live an active, safe and socially inclusive lifestyle.

The Age Friendly Plan will ensure HRCC becomes an increasingly age-inclusive region, and will assist us to deliver projects, services and places that are inclusive of people as they age. This plan highlights the priorities that are particularly important to older people living in our community, and when implemented will support the continued development of an age friendly community.

Feedback

We invite all members of the community to participate and share their feedback on the Draft Plan. You can do this by:
