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.

Our population is ageing and the number of people over 65 years of age will increase by 50% from 2011 to 2026. Coffs Harbour City Council is committed to developing a Positive Ageing Strategy. 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.

The 'Positive Ageing in the Coffs Harbour LGA Survey' has now closed. A summary of the results will be shared once the data has been analysed.

There will be more opportunity to have your say on the development of the Strategy as work to create a draft continues during 2018/19.
