Council sought community feedback on a draft five-year plan which aims to make Monash an Age-Friendly city.
Feedback closed on Friday 20 March 2015.
The aim is to improve the living conditions and experiences of Monash's older adults.
The draft plan was developed after Council sought the ideas and views of older community members. In this, Council was greatly assisted by 21 Age-Friendly Ambassadors. These ambassadors are local residents who volunteered their time and expertise to visit their fellow residents and seek their views.
In 2014, the ambassadors visited 36 senior groups and engaged in discussions with more than 1200 residents. The matters raised in these discussions have been included in the draft Age-Friendly plan. In addition, more than 700 surveys were completed by local residents. The matters raised in these surveys have also been incorporated into the draft plan.
The final plan was adopted by Council on 30 June 2015.
