This consultation has now closed thank you for your feedback.

We value the contribution older people make to our community. This strategy and action plan outlines how we will continue to support older people to live well in Yarra.

We developed this strategy, along with our Draft Access and Inclusion Strategy, following an extensive community consultation in February and March 2018.

We spoke to our community at a number of workshops and pop-up sessions and heard from more than 20 Yarra-based support organisations. On top of this we received more than 250 contributions from the broader community.

What you told us

You told us that your top priorities for older people are:

  • Open space - access to local parks and gardens
  • Community facilities - such as libraries and leisure centres
  • Social and community programs - to connect with other people and the benefits of socialisation and exercise
  • Independence - the ability to live independently
