Join us in reconnecting around age friendly communities with a program designed to provide current information, tips and tools to get you started, or to help with your age friendly journey.
The LG Professionals WA Age Friendly Communities Network is very pleased to welcome Hon. Don Punch MLA, Minister for Disability Services; Fisheries; Innovation and ICT; Seniors and Ageing to speak, and to launch the Department of Communities' revised Age Friendly Toolkit.
Christine Young, Director Community Development at the City of Melville and Chair of the LG Professionals WA Age Friendly Communities Network, will present with the Department of Communities on the WA Local Government shared priorities taken from a survey of local governments across the state. Christine will also share highlights from the International Federation on Ageing Conference (9-12 November) including the Age Friendly Communities Summit. The program will showcase a range of age friendly initiatives including key projects from the WA local government members of the Global Health Organisation Global Network of Age Friendly Communities. The forum will feature both metropolitan and regional WA age friendly approaches, encourage regional collaborations and will be live streamed for those unable to come in person.
