Positive Ageing Advisory Committee

Council is forming a Positive Ageing Advisory Committee to provide input and recommendations into the planning stage of Council strategies, plans and policies which relate to older people. The Positive Ageing Advisory Committee (the Committee) will 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

The Committee will represent and advocate on behalf of older persons from our community including people with a disability, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTIQ+), people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island background, people experiencing financial disadvantage (including people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness), multicultural and multifaith communities.

(Expressions of interest from the community to be included on the Committee closed on 28 September 2018.)
