Ipswich City Council is committed to enhancing the quality of life of our older citizens. This requires knowledge within the community of the needs and issues of older people. It requires that the community considers its attitudes to older people and that the community values the worth and contribution of our senior citizens.

Ipswich City Council embraces the following principles:

  • Promote positive community attitudes towards and acceptance of older people and their right to independence, self-determination, dignity and choice.
  • Value the skills, resources and diversity of older people and provide older people with an opportunity to grow to their fullest capacity and make a life long contribution to the community.
  • Provide access to appropriate information, employment, training, learning, housing, transport, cultural, recreational, safety, security and care services that are appropriate to the diverse needs of older people.
  • Encourage partnerships within the community that enable people to age positively and within a supported environment.
