Services for Older People

Local support and services for seniors and people over 50.

Bayside Age-Friendly Community Strategy

We are developing an Age-Friendly Community Strategy 2022-2026. The Strategy will set out Council’s four-year plan to ensure all people in Bayside experience the benefits of living longer, safer and healthier and continue to enjoy opportunities to participate in community life.

Community consultation to inform the Strategy has now ended. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute.

The Strategy will be published once it has been adopted by Council.

Our friendly and welcoming seniors centres and seniors groups run activities including:

Seniors in Bayside

People aged 60 years and over make up 19% of the Bayside population, with citizens aged 70 years and over making up 10.5% of the overall population.

This group includes people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. 52% of our senior residents speak a language other than English at home. 8.2% of residents do not speak English fluently and so are more likely to require language and culturally specific services as they age.
