Positive Ageing Strategy

Insert a description of the image

Positive Ageing is about creating an age-friendly community which facilitates older people’s participation and involvement in the broader community. It recognises the key roles ageing people play as family members, carers, volunteers, neighbours, workers and consumers.

A positive ageing community is a place where older people can actively participate in community activities and feel respected and involved. It is a safe place that supports good health so that everyone can live with dignity and joy as they age.

Our population is ageing and the number of people over 65 years of age will increase by 50% from 2011 to 2026.

The Strategy will highlight Council's commitment to supporting positive ageing and provide direction for how Council will respond to the opportunities and challenges of an ageing population.

Positive Ageing Survey

Coffs Harbour City Council is developing a Positive Ageing Strategy and we want to understand what is important for older people and what can be done to improve the experience of ageing in our Local Government Area (LGA).

If you are aged 55 years or older we invite you to contribute your views and experience to this survey to assist the development of Council’s Positive Ageing Strategy.
