People aged 55 and over can have their say on the State Government’s seniors strategy outcomes they would like to see during two days of public meetings in July.

The Midwest Multicultural Association will run the consultations developed by Department of Communities. The 10-year Seniors Strategy supports older West Australians to achieve a higher quality life as they age.

The strategy looks at supporting WA seniors of all backgrounds to live their best, guide whole-of-community efforts of the support, implement two-year action plans to co-ordinate government activities, and align with other government strategies addressing older people’s needs.

President of the Midwest Multicultural Association Tom Mwangi urged people over 55 to share their thoughts, saying the consultation was an important way to benefit the older community.

“Although I am not in the age group yet, I believe that it is important for our elders from all cultural backgrounds to give their thoughts to the State Government to consider about what they need to age gracefully,” he said.
