This strategy is part of Cardinia Shire’s commitment to providing opportunities for older people to maintain physical and mental health, feel safe and secure, participate fully in the community and stay connected to others.
It includes an action plan that sets out activities and projects to be delivered in partnership over a 12-month period.
Some of the actions include:
- Consider age-friendly requirements when creating recreational master plans and township strategies
- Develop and promote events, activities and programs, for older adults
- Get volunteers to assess the age friendliness of their local community
