The City of Ballarat provides a range of services for older residents, residents with disabilities and their carers. These services help older people and people with disabilities maintain healthy, active and independent lifestyles in their own home and within the community. The Positive Ageing Strategy has been developed in response to the significant ageing of our population.
The Seniors Card entitles Australians aged 60 years and over to a range of benefits provided by government and businesses. The card is free and issued by the Victorian State Government to eligible residents. It is issued in recognition of the contribution that seniors have made - and continue to make to the Australian community.
