Description

The ACT Active Ageing Framework 2015-2018 provides guidance to ACT Government directorates and requires them to incorporate active ageing principles into mainstream policies such as health, transport, employment, housing and social inclusion.

- Services and programs are inclusive, empowering and responsive and recognise the diversity of seniors and their right to safety, security and informed decision making.
- Opportunities exist for seniors to be socially connected and active participants in community life through lifelong learning and social and economic engagement.
- The needs of seniors are recognised by supporting good urban planning for user friendly environments that benefit all ages.
