Draft Older Persons Strategy

Stage 1 - Preliminary Feedback

North Sydney Council is committed to understanding and responding to the needs of older people in our community. In early 2018 we sought input to update our Older Persons Strategy to ensure it reflects the needs and issues of older people in our community. Feedback closed 5pm, Friday 27 April 2018. We encouraged participation from all community members, including individuals, family members, carers and service providers. There were several ways to provide feedback:

  • Quick Survey - open to the general public. As an incentive to participate Council gave away a $100 gift voucher to one randomly selected survey respondent.
  • Submissions - send a submission to the address below or use the online submission form.
  • Focus Groups - these sessions brought together community members, service providers and key stakeholders to discuss local issues for older people:
    - Session 1: Tuesday 20 March 2018, 10am to 12pm, Stanton Library, Conference Room
    - Session 2: Thursday 22 March 2018, 2pm to 4pm, Crows Nest Centre

Stage 2 - Draft Strategy on Exhibition, Feedback closes 5pm, 18 December 2018
