Positive Ageing Plan

‘Participate’ is the Macedon Ranges Positive Ageing Plan 2020-2025, which reflects the needs, aspirations and priorities to support our aims of being an age-friendly community.

Almost 1,000 community members provided feedback and input into the development of this five year plan that has a strong focus on social connections, being active, living well, advocating for their needs, valuing and respecting older people.

We hope to create an age-friendly community that supports older people to:

  • feel included and able to participate in the community including events and activities they choose
  • be confident that there are services, supports and programs available to meet their needs
  • feel they can participate in and move around the community safely and easily
  • live a safe, dignified life and make their own decisions
  • be respected and their contributions are valued.

Two key documents have been produced. A comprehensive plan with key themes and annual actions for Council over the life of the plan and a shorter summary of the plan’s priority areas.
