Ageing Well in Wellington Shire a priority with community feedback open until 11 December 2022
It is more important than ever that support services and programs are put in place to support residents to age well, live healthy lives, and be engaged and connected in local communities.
Wellington Shire Council would like to know what Ageing Well in Wellington Shire looks like now and into the future. Older adults contribute greatly to community life and are our fastest growing population groups in Wellington. We know that ageing well is a key consideration for our community, and we have a role to play in influencing improved outcomes for the local community and ensuring services meet local needs.
