Positive Ageing Strategy 2016-2026

Consultation has concluded

The Wingecarribee Shire Council is developing a Positive Ageing Strategy 2016-2026 to plan for the needs of our ageing population. The Strategy will document how Council aims to support older people to live happy, healthy, independent lives and remain connected to the community as they age.

The aim of this consultation is to understand what is important to older people within the Wingecarribee and what can be done to improve the Shire for people as they age. Community feedback will guide Council in developing the Strategy and priorities for the next ten years.
