What does an Age Friendly Moorabool look like?
A number of Age-Friendly Ambassadors have been engaged to be involved in an Age-Friendly Project in Moorabool Shire from March until October 2018. The Ambassadors will assist in the delivery the project, and help to raise the profile of positive ageing in Moorabool.
The Age-Friendly Project aims to improve the age-friendliness of communities by:
- Consulting with individuals and groups within their communities
- Workshopping information, needs and opportunities
- Helping to identify and drive some funded local projects in Bacchus Marsh, Ballan and Bungaree
- Helping to raise the profile of positive ageing and of Moorabool as a great place to grow old in
- Providing information and advice to Council
During April and May Moorabool Shire Council and its Age-Friendly Ambassadors will be meeting with community groups, organisations and individuals within the community asking older residents to complete a survey or quick question postcard to let us know how we can work together to make Moorabool a great place to grow old in.
Some Think Tanks will be provided to workshop ideas gathered through the community consultation. A number of local Age-ility projects will then be identified and developed in Bacchus Marsh, Ballan and Bungaree.
The survey can be completed online at www.moorabool.vic.gov.au/consultations. Online surveys will be accessible from April 20 until the end of May, 2018. Paper copies and postcards will be available at the Lerderderg Library, Ballan Library, through the Rural Library Service, and via customer service at the Darley and Ballan Council Offices.
