We provide support to the community in a number of ways including:
Local community and not for profit groups are again being offered a wonderful opportunity to enhance the knowledge and skills base of their organisation through a series of free training sessions.
The free training is being offered by the City of Greater Bendigo, the Regional Association of Neighbourhood and Community Houses (RANCH) and the Loddon Bendigo Rural Women's Network (LBRWN) as part of a commitment to assist local community and not for profit groups in the important work that they do.
The training sessions will commence on February 25 and will continue each month through until June. The sessions will cover a range of topics.

Along with the Positive Ageing Advisory Group, we have released a brochure Bendigo Residential Facilities, Retirement Villages and Community Care Programs for older people to make it easier to access information on residential care services.
The brochure has information and contact details for older residents who are considering down-sizing or need subsidised care facilities.
The brochure has being distributed to local care providers, seniors clubs and other interested groups. It is also available at our Customer Service Centre in Lyttleton Terrace, Bendigo.
If your group or organisation has not received the brochure and feel it could benefit your members or clients, please contact Community and Cultural Development on 5454 6464.
Formed in February 2011, the Positive Ageing Advisory Group oversees the implementation of the Positive Ageing Strategy. They have a role in raising community awareness about ageing issues and how governments, business and community can build a culture that responds to the needs and aspirations of older people. They also have a role in information exchange between community and local government, contributing to the development of policies and programs, and providing feedback and advice to CofGB.
Advisory Group members include interested older residents and people from community groups or services who work with older people. There are three areas that the Advisory Group have prioritised: transport, housing and social connections. Working groups have been formed to focus on topics.
There are currently vacancies on the Positive Ageing Advisory Group. You can download Information and Expression of Interest forms below:
