Learn more about the City of Stirling's seniors strategies and initiatives that support and encourage long-term independence for senior members of our community. 

Stirling Milestones

Stirling Milestones

The City acknowledges important milestones such as birthdays over 100 years old and wedding anniversaries above 50 in 5 year increments.

Recipients receive a plaque, a bottle of wine and chocolates presented by The Mayor or the corresponding Ward Councillors on behalf of Council.

Age-friendly strategy

The City of Stirling has over 43,000 residents over the age of 60 living in the community, so it’s important that we provide services and support to our residents as they age.

The City consulted with the community on important issues and included discussions on:

  • Housing
  • Social participation
  • Support and health services
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Transport and much more.

This identified our priorities and objectives to help us become an age-friendly city, which can be found in our Age Friendly Strategy 2017 - 2022.

Age Friendly Strategy 2017 - 2022

Hard copies of the strategy are available at the City’s community centres, libraries and at the Administration Centre in Stirling.
