Local Government NSW
Age-friendly Toolkit for NSW Local Government
NSW is home to more than 3 million older people aged 60+ years, representing 22% of our total population. Older people are a diverse group spanning different geographic areas, ages, abilities, incomes, genders and backgrounds. Older people have many strengths and skills and play a valuable role in their communities, but may also face challenges and barriers to accessing services and participating in community life.
Local government is well placed to plan for an ageing population and to provide an appropriate level of services and facilities to older community members.
Local Government NSW engaged Cred Consulting to review and update the Age-friendly Toolkit for NSW Local Government, which was initially published in 2012.
