Age-friendly communities - the role of local government

Age-friendly communities - the role of local government

Having spent the past 12 to 18 months working on a number of projects within the aged care sector, the concept of creating ‘age friendly communities’ has been regularly raised by many consumers and stakeholders that we have had the privilege of talking to. 

Although the nature of our previous engagements have been primarily health related, we have become ever more curious about the role of local government in achieving communities that are truly ‘age-friendly’. We acknowledge that by working within the health paradigm alone, you can only get so far in delivering broad health and social outcomes for the community.
