Get involved in age-friendly Darebin

Find out how you can get involved in making Darebin more age-friendly.

Darebin is progressing well toward becoming an Age Friendly City. 

In 2019 an independent panel presented 'the Age Friendly Darebin' report to Council.  It included 98 recommendations on how older residents can be better supported to live well in our community. The recommendations encouraged new initiatives and services, increased advocacy, and Age-Friendly principles embedded in Council’s plans and strategies.

In 2020 the Aged and Disability Department presented the Age Friendly Darebin Year One report to Council. A ‘Snapshot' of this progress report was designed in co-operation with a group of community members. It reflects some of the new programs and services, trials, and initiatives that Council started to support older people in 2020. It also describes the challenges that came along with the COVID-19 pandemic and Council’s response to limit the impacts on our community.

Visit the Your Say Darebin webpage for more information and to read the full Age Friendly Darebin report.
