The City of Stirling provides many activities and events for seniors such as Autumn Clubs and the Stirling Silver program. Find out how to get involved.

Stirling Silver Program

The Stirling Silver Program operates from four of the City of Stirling's community centres - Scarborough, Balga, Osborne and Bob Daniel at Inglewood.

From these centres, we are able to organise outings and a range of social activities, guest speakers (with morning / afternoon teas) and a variety of 'hands-on' workshops and information sessions, including health and wellbeing, physical activity, and keeping up with technology.

For more information please contact Community Services on (08) 9205 8555.

Age-Friendly Strategy

The City of Stirling has over 43,000 residents aged 60 years and over living within the community.

The City recently undertook extensive community consultation to find out what is important to people as they age. This consultation was funded by the Department of Communities and was based on the World Health Organisation eight domains of an Age-Friendly City:

Housing

• Communication and information

• Social participation

• Community support and health services

• Respect and social inclusion

• Outdoor spaces and buildings

• Civic participation and employment

• Transportation

The outcome of this broad consultation identified the priorities and actions which form the City of Stirling's new Age-Friendly Strategy        2017-2022.

Hard copies are available at Stirling's community centres and libraries and the Stirling Administration Centre.

Community members are invited to provide ongoing feedback on the strategy. You can do this by providing written feedback to:      Community Services Department, 11 Royal Street, Osborne Park 6018 or email: carol.booker@stirling.wa.gov.au

Autumn clubs

Autumn/Senior Citizens Clubs operate from most of the City of Stirling's community centres and provide a meeting place for mature-aged people who wish to participate in social, educational and recreational activities.

How do they operate?

Each club elects a management committee, which is responsible for managing the club's program of activities and general operations.

What do they do?

Each club arranges its own program of activities, which may include:

  • Social activities—concerts, bus trips, dancing, cards or bingo
  • Recreational activities—indoor bowls, keep fit, darts or pool
  • Arts and crafts—painting, sewing or crocheting.

If there is enough interest, a club may also arrange instructional classes.

What does it cost?

Each club also sets the annual subscription.

Who is eligible to join?

City of Stirling resident and aged 55 years or over are eligible to join. Younger residents who receive a Disability Support Pension are also eligible.
