Draft Positive Ageing Commitment

The City of Hobart is committed to building inclusive, strong and healthy communities through the celebration of diversity and participation in community life, by making services, programs and facilities accessible for all people.

This draft Positive Ageing Commitment works to create and strengthen the networks, opportunities and resources that assist people in maintaining control over their lives as they age. The commitment identifies a range of actions, initiatives and programs that support the City’s commitment to the following:

  • strengthening the social inclusion of older people
  • celebrating older people’s diversity
  • encouraging older people to feel valued, listened to and empowered
  • facilitating positive ageing opportunities within the community
  • promoting events, information, programs and support for older people.

The City is now seeking community feedback on the draft Positive Ageing Commitment. Feedback gathered during this engagement period will be used to consider any changes or amendments to the draft commitments before presenting the final documents to Council in June 2021.
