In 2010, the Shire consulted with our senior population as part of developing our Age Friendly Communities Plan. One of the recommendations in the Plan was: “That the Shire develops a strategy to regularly promote small local groups providing socializing opportunities so that older people at risk of social isolation are informed of these groups and their activities and given the opportunity to participate.”
In response to this recommendation, the Shire commenced development and distribution of the ‘Seniors’ Link’ monthly newsletter to make it easier for seniors to know what social, recreational and cultural activities are taking place in the Shire.
The Seniors’ Link is currently distributed to 379 seniors every month and 318 activities have been promoted in the Seniors’ Link to date for this current year.
Please contact Donna Sims on 9727 0222 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive a copy of the Seniors’ Link every month.
