Ageing Well Community Survey


What do you think are the biggest issues for your community as the population ages?

Our communities are changing – we are ageing and living longer than ever before.  In fact, Federation Council already has a population that is older than the NSW state average (27% compared with 16% over 65 years) and this is predicted to increase to 38% by 2036 (compared with NSW 21%).

Our changing communities bring both challenges and opportunities.  In response, Federation Council is preparing an Ageing Well Strategy that will identify long term directions and priority services, infrastructure and projects for the next 4 years. 

To do this, and get it right, we invite you to help by completing the Ageing Well Community Survey.

The key areas the survey will address include:

  • Outdoor Spaces and Buildings.
  • Transportation.
  • Housing.
  • Social Participation.
  • Respect and Inclusion.
  • Civic Participation and Employment.
  • Communication and Information.
  • Community and Health Services.

The results from this survey will be added to literature and data reviews, service provider interviews, and focus group information and will be used to inform the Ageing Well Strategy 2018-2021.
