Positive Ageing

Council’s Positive Ageing initiatives provide opportunities for people over 55 to age positively in the City of Kingston and work to create an environment where older people feel valued, respected and acknowledged for the contributions they make to the community.

Positive Ageing Plan 2014 - 2019

The Kingston Positive Ageing Plan is a five year strategy through which Council aims to have policies, services, settings and structures that support the development of an age friendly community in Kingston. The plan is guided by the World Health Organisation’s  Age Friendly Cities Framework and outlines priorities in the following areas:

  • Outdoor Spaces and Buildings
  • Transport
  • Housing
  • Social Participation
  • Respect and Social Inclusion
  • Civic Participation and Employment
  • Communication and information
  • Community and Health Services

Through the plan Council aims to capture the wisdom and experience of older people and facilitate opportunities for their ongoing involvement and contribution to the Kingston community.
