Older People

Creating an age-friendly community

We aim to create an age-friendly city where older people can work, live and play in Banyule and feel as a valued member of the community. Banyule provides a range of activities and services to assist people to live independently and be active members of the community. We also partner with a number of community agencies, including neighbourhood houses, health centres, seniors' clubs and other community organisations to encourage participation and provide opportunities for older people to be active and social within the community.

Banyule has established the Age-friendly Advisory Committee with membership drawn from the local community and we encourage residents to be Age-friendly City Champions participating in activities that support Banyule in becoming more age-friendly.
