Have Your Say: Positive Ageing Strategy

Mornington Peninsula Shire is developing a new Positive Ageing Strategy to ensure people on the Mornington Peninsula are supported to age well and to promote optimal health and wellbeing.

We’re inviting the community to share your thoughts on ageing on the Peninsula, what’s working well and what needs improvement. This is your opportunity to contribute and share any new ideas and opportunities that will enable us to work better together. We encourage residents, older people, service provider representatives, clubs and groups, and local businesses to get involved and have your say, about ageing positively in our community.

Your ideas will help us plan for the future and shape our plan, which will come back to the community later this year for comment.
