The Ageing Well in Ballarat Strategy 2022-2026 outlines our vision to create an age friendly community where people feel valued, connected, included and respected and feel confident to participate fully however they choose.

The strategy is aligned with the World Health Organisation’s Age Friendly Cities and Communities Framework which is being used by communities around the world to ensure practical measure are put in place to help people as they age.

By viewing a community through an age friendly lens like this, city planners, residents, business and service providers can help create a city that meets its residents needs.  

Planning for an Age-Friendly City is one of the most effective ways to meet the needs of older residents and delivers benefits to the whole community.
