Moorabool Shire Council is looking for Expressions of Interest from older local residents to form a Positive Ageing Advisory Committee.
See Positive Ageing Advisory Committee Terms of reference
The Committee will:
- Provide an opportunity for informed discussion on issues impacting upon older members;
- Increase community awareness of the needs of older members of the community;
- Review and make recommendations for the Age Well, Live Well and Access and Inclusion Strategy.
If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in please fill in the Expression of Interest form. Expressions of Interest will be accepted up until 20 December, 2018.
For more information please contact the Manager Active Ageing and Community Access on 5366 7100.
To submit your Expression of Interest form please post to Positive Ageing Advisory Group, Moorabool Shire Council, PO Box 18, Ballan 3342 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver to a Moorabool Shire Council Customer Service Centre.
Council supports activities that encourage people to become involved in their community. Consider giving some of your time to volunteer, or visit places like men's sheds and community gardens, where you can mix with like-minded fellow residents.
Council can help you make a rewarding and valuable contribution to the Moorabool community. Volunteering offers lots of benefits to both you and the community. When you volunteer, you can:
- Learn new skills
- Meet new people and form new relationships
- Gain experience and expand your career choices
- Give back to the community
- Gain personal satisfaction
- Build self-confidence
- Have fun
It doesn’t matter if you can spare only a few hours a month, or if you are able to volunteer each week, all offers of assistance are very welcome.
Social Support Volunteers
Volunteers are crucial to the operation of our Social Support program. You might want to assist in our group activities for older folk. If so please contact the Co-ordinator on 5366 1206
