Expressions of interest open for Positive Ageing Advisory Committee
The City of Greater Bendigo is looking for older adults interested in joining its Positive Ageing Advisory Committee.
The Committee advises Council on the needs and priorities of older adults in the development of the City’s policies, services, and projects.
Manager Community Wellbeing Chris Kelly said the Committee will promote the participation, views and needs of older adults in the community to improve physical and mental wellbeing.
“We are looking for community members aged 50 or over who are actively involved and would like to be part of the Committee,” Ms Kelly said.
“Members will need to demonstrate their ability to represent the views and needs of older adults at regular committee meetings.
“This is a great opportunity to have input into programs and policies that affect older adults and contribute to a positive ageing in the community.”
There are eight positions open for community members and representatives from groups and organisations that support older people. Applications for membership are open now and the positions are for a four year term.
Expressions of interest close on April 8 and can be submitted at www.bendigo.vic.gov.au/positiveageing
