Positive Ageing Strategy

Older people are valuable resources and fulfil a number of important roles within our community here in the Hastings District. They are volunteers; paid workers; community leaders; mentors and important family members. 

It is important that Hastings District Council understands how it can best support the wellbeing of older people in our community so that they can live a fulfilling and enjoyable life that enables their active participation in both the economy and community; in ways that they choose.

This Strategy is a vehicle to achieve this in an integrated and comprehensive manner.

The Positive Ageing Strategy 2014 replaces the Postive Ageing Strategy 2007
