community support

We promote greater public awareness of social issues and enhance individual and community group capacity.

We do this by:

 

  • Developing opportunities for older people to participate in programs/events/activities/projects designed to develop their skills and support them in reaching their full potential.

  • Including older people in program/project development including consultation,. design, delivery and evaluation.

  • Providing opportunities for older people to express their ideas, raise issues of concern to them, and act on issues which affect their lives leading them to become engaged and resilient.

  • Developing opportunities for the wider community to listen to older people and acknowledge and celebrate their positive contributions made by their efforts and achievements.
  • Supporting older people to positively connect with their families, friends and social networks.

  • Delivering programs/events/activities/projects in a culturally appropriate manner
