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.

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.

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 download the Stirling Silver Program or contact Community Services on (08) 9205 8555.

What is Age-Friendly?

Age-Friendly is a strategy developed by the World Health Organisation to facilitate the inclusion of older persons to make our world more age-friendly. An age-friendly world enables people of all ages to actively participate in community activities and treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age. It is a place that makes it easy for older people to stay connected to the people that are important to them. It helps people stay healthy and active even at the oldest age and provides appropriate support to those who can no longer look after themselves.

Age-Friendly Stirling Project

The Age-Friendly Stirling project aims to increase awareness of local needs by adopting a 'bottom-up' approach to enable the City to identify any improvements or suggestions that could make the Stirling community more age-friendly.

Have a look at our Age-Friendly page for more information.
