Ku-Ring-Gai Ageing Strategy

Ku-ring-gai Shire Council

The population of older people 65+ living in Ku-ring-gai is around 17% of the population - much higher than Greater Sydney (12.7%). Cred developed an Ageing Strategy to assist Council in planning for future growth in the aged population and to address the needs and aspirations of older residents. The Strategy will enable Council to respond to the challenges of the ageing population by fostering an age friendly environment, which promotes active ageing and community participation. This Strategy will be fundamental to the provision of appropriate and well thought out infrastructure and services, build local capacity and identify partnership opportunities to project delivery. Extensive, participatory and representative engagement formed a central part of the development of the Strategy.
