Positive ageing in our community
The positive contribution that is made by older people to our public, families, employment, volunteering and community, deserves much wider recognition and respect.
Older people work, volunteer, provide care and participate widely in community and family life. Many families, communities and organisations depend on older people for their skills, knowledge and experience; older people provide care and support to thousands of others who benefit from their assistance. With one of the highest rates of over 65’s workforce participation, older New Zealanders are significant economic contributors through taxation, spending and saving. Older people form an important, growing market for the providers of goods and services.
The ageing population of our region has an effect on all of us. Let’s value ageing!
Hastings District Council Positive Ageing Strategy 2014
Hastings District Council reviewed its Positive Ageing Strategy in 2014.
“It is important that Hastings District Council understands how it can best support the wellbeing of older people in our community so that they can live a fulfilling and enjoyable life that enables their active participation in both the economy and community; in ways that they choose.
This Strategy is a vehicle to achieve this in an integrated and comprehensive manner.”
