Age Friendly Consultations FINAL   


Come along and have your say at one of the five Age Friendly consultations that are happening across the Mount Alexander Shire in October. There will be a number of projects rolled out in 2017 and 2018 to help older community members participate fully in community life and to support the health and wellbeing of people over 65 years.

Representatives from Castlemaine Community House and Maldon Neighbourhood Centre have spoken with key agencies that work with or for older people and have developed project concepts from these conversations.

“We want the communities across Mount Alexander to tell us which projects are right for them, and how they can be improved to best meet community need” explains Centre Coordinator, Amy Atkinson from Maldon Neighbourhood Centre. “There will be consultation events held in Taradale, Castlemaine, Newstead and Maldon.”

Community buses will be available to transport interested community members to the consultations.

“We have a number of volunteer Positive Ageing Ambassadors hosting small group discussions about the project concepts as well as the five larger consultation events.” Said Martyn Shaddick, Manager Castlemaine Community House. “We would like to hear from a diverse range of community members and we encourage everyone to get involved”.

Age Friendly Communities

Supporting social participation, healthy ageing and inclusion of people as they age is really fundamental to an ‘age friendly community’. Maldon Neighbourhood Centre is partnering with Castlemaine Community House with the support of Mount Alexander Shire Council, who received funding from the Victorian Government to consult the community about local ‘age friendly’ projects.
