Council is currently seeking expressions of interest from Lorne residents who would like to join the Positive Ageing Advisory Committee on a volunteer basis to help shape the future in the Surf Coast Shire. Applications close 15 February, 2020.
What is the Positive Ageing Advisory Committee?
The purpose of the Positive Ageing Advisory Committee is to collect and consider evidence, ideas and community input about how Council can best create an Age Friendly Surf Coast where older people are valued, supported and empowered to live well, including but not limited to these topics:
• Social inclusion, social and civic participation
• Built environment, transport and housing
• Community support and health services
Committee members must be prepared to contribute to the advice to Council on important issues affecting older people and people with a disability. These voluntary roles are highly valued and genuinely make a difference for people in Surf Coast Shire Communities.
