Active Ageing Strategy Engagement Introduction

The City of Unley is proud to be recognised by the World Health Organisation as an Age Friendly City and Community. We are actively working to enhance our commitment to this to ensure our City is accessible to everyone, promotes health and wellbeing and provides opportunities for connection, inclusion and contribution.

To support this commitment, a new Active Ageing Strategy has been developed in partnership with the University of SA.Our Active Ageing Strategy is centred on the celebration of ageing. This comprehensive Strategy aims to guide Council’s approach in all of its activities to become an Age Friendly City and to ensure that we meet the changing needs of our community throughout their lives.

The Strategy provides a strong vision, aims and guiding principles, along with an overview of nine Key Focus Areas. An indicative Action Plan has also been developed that outlines specific initiatives which will enable us to achieve our objectives, along with key performance indicators to measure the success of our Active Ageing endeavours.

A key action within the draft Active Ageing Strategy includes the establishment of the City of Unley Active Ageing Alliance. This group will become a critical part of the finalisation and subsequent delivery of the Strategy by assisting us to further identify and priorities actions

As such, Council’s role is broad and ranges from information and referral to advocacy and finally to partner or direct provider.
