Deputation - Palmerston North Age Friendly

 

Councillor Duncan McCann entered the meeting at 9.03am.

Councillor Vaughan Dennison entered the meeting at 9.06am.

 

Ms Raewyn Cameron made a deputation to Council and tabled their 2018-2021 Strategy.

Ms Cameron advised that the group had formed 18 months ago and now has 12 members. The age friendly process is incredibly important because it is raising the conversation in the community about what it means to age well. The process that has been developed in Palmerston North is simply a conversation about what we value and what we want to protect. Their goals apply across all ages and they have become more aware about how they can foster a society where all ages can flourish.

Ms Cameron explained that an age friendly community is a community that cares, and caring is the responsibility of all. The support from the network of community service providers and the wider city community is essential to move this strategy beyond a vision into a programme for action, implementation and change.
