Age-friendly Communities Strategy

By 2026 almost 1 in 4 Australians will be aged 60 or over. This demographic shift will have implications for health, aged and income support services.
It is important to design ‘age-friendly’ communities that value the contribution of older people and ensure their access to community life.


The World Health Organization has developed an age-friendly world model.


We are supporting our Age-friendly Declaration by: 

  • Leading a state government funded project for developing East Gippsland as an Age-friendly community, through planning and community engagement;

  • Investing in infrastructure upgrades that support the economic and social benefits of towns adopting an age-friendly approach to future growth; and

  • Developing an Age-friendly Network that supports, promotes and celebrates ageing as a positive outcome of our wellbeing and as a catalyst for inter-generational engagement and respect.
