The Surf Coast Shire Council's Positive Ageing Advisory Committee (PAAC) is comprised of up to eleven community representatives, endorsed every three years. The members reflect the diversity of the shire in gender, culture and geography. The committee also includes one nominated councillor and relevant Council officers. 

The PAAC's role is to provide input and recommendations into Council strategies, plans and policies which relate to people ageing well within their communities. PAAC members also champion and support the facilitation of Council's Age Friendly Strategy 2020 - 2024(PDF, 5MB).

The PAAC acts as an advisory committee to Council. Its role 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.
