Older Person's Service Directory

In response to our older community members asking for a handy 'hard copy' book that lists local activitites and services, the City presents the Older Person's Service Directory. The Directory contains information about a wide range of serivces, activities and interest groups available in our local area.

If you are new to the City of Armadale and/or looking for services and activities for over 50s, please download our Older Person's Service Directory or pick up a copy at one of the City's three Libraries, the Perth Hills Armadale Visitors Centre or the City's Main Administration building.

While the City has made every endeavour to capture all community groups and services, if your organisation's details are not included, please contact the City of Armadale by emailing info@armadale.wa.gov.au.

Programs and events

For more information about events for older people run regularly at the Armadale Library, including Positive Ageing Sessions, please visit the Library's What's On page.

Volunteering

Keep active and contribute to your community by volunteering!

Being a volunteer has many benefits. It can facilitate the enjoyment of new experiences and purpose in life, meeting new people, increase self esteem, stress relief and a better frame of mind.

Age friendly community strategy

Developed through consultation with the local community and service providers and based on the World Health Organisation’s Age Friendly Communities Framework, the City's Age Friendly Community Strategy ties in with the City’s Strategic Community Plan and Corporate Business Plan. 

An Age Friendly Community is defined as one which recognises diversity amongst older people, promotes their inclusion and contribution in all areas of community life, respects decisions and lifestyle choices and responds to ageing related needs and preference. The City is committed to working to support its growing population of older residents and the strategy reflects this through key elements outlined in the relevant action plan.

For more information please view the City's Age Friendly Community Strategy below.
