Thank you for your interest in the City of Bayswater Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025.

At its Ordinary Council Meeting, 24 August 2021 Council approved the action plan for the Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025.

The final Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025 document will be launched to the community in line with Seniors Week 2021 (7 to 14 November).

Background

The purpose of the City’s Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025, is to provide a four year action plan that identifies key priorities, future initiative and services, and community activities that support and enhance the health and wellbeing of older people living, working and visiting the City of Bayswater.

The strategy will guide our journey to becoming an Age Friendly City and will build on the successes of the City’s first Age Friendly Strategy 2017-2021.

Comprehensive community engagement undertaken between April and May to inform the development of an action plan for the Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025 where clear priorities were identified from over 800 comments received by the community. These priorities are aligned to the eight WHO Age Friendly Cities outcome areas:

1. Civic participation and employment

2. Communication and information

3. Community support and health services

4. Housing

5. Outdoor spaces and buildings

6. Respect and social inclusion

7. Social participation

8. Transport

The resulting strategy is richly informed by community input.

Community Consultation

Community Consultation for the Age Friendly Strategy 2021-2025 was undertaken during April and May 2021, and welcomed input from those who live, work and recreate in the City of Bayswater via the following:

  • 295 surveys completed
