​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.

 

Age-Friendly Stirling Community Consultation

The Age-Friendly Stirling community consultation will build a picture of how age-friendly the City of Stirling is, and will also identify areas for improvement. It is based on the World Health Organisation's Age Friendly City eight domains:

  • Housing
  • Communication and information
  • Social participation
  • Community support and health services
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Outdoor spaces and buildings
  • Civic participation and employment
  • Transportation

This consultation is part of an Age-Friendly Region initiative which is a partnership between the cities of Stirling, Joondalup and Wanneroo and is supported by the Department of Local Government and Communities.

To participate in this consultation, please complete the online survey here or participate in one of the City's consultation workshops.
