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 of Armadale’s Age Friendly Community Strategy (2018-2023) links 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.
