Positive Ageing

Positive Ageing

‘Positive Ageing’ is related to the creation of an age-friendly community. That is, creating a community which facilitates older peoples' participation and involvement. It recognises the vital roles ageing people play as family members, carers, volunteers, neighbours, workers and consumers. Positive Ageing is also about how we, as a community, value our older citizens. Other terms used interchangeably with positive ageing are ‘ageing well’, ‘successful ageing’, ‘productive ageing’ or ‘active ageing’.


Byron Shire Council Positive Ageing Strategy and Action Plan 2012 - 2016 recognises the valuable contribution that older people have made to our community and their continuing input to the well being of our Shire.
