Description

The vision of both the first, and this, the second Tasmanian Plan for Positive Ageing, is to develop a
Tasmanian society in which people of all ages are recognised and valued, treated with dignity and
respect and encouraged to contribute their wealth of experience and skills.

The plan aims to:
• provide support for individuals to take a lifelong approach to their ageing
• facilitate links and initiatives across government agencies within the State to meet the needs
of older Tasmanians
• encourage the community, including local government, business and community
organisations, to provide opportunities for older Tasmanians to continue to participate
in their community.
