The World Health Organisation developed an Age-Friendly Cities model based on eight domains that assess a community’s age-friendliness, which are:
• Social participation
• Respect and social inclusion
• Civic participation and employment
• Communication and information
• Community support and health services
• Outdoor spaces and buildings
In an age-friendly community there is a culture of inclusion shared by people of all ages and ability levels. Policies, services and structures related to the physical and social environment are designed to support and enable older people to "age actively", that is, to live in security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society.
Age-Friendly Joondalup is part of an Age-Friendly regional partnership with the Cities of Wanneroo and Stirling, and is supported by the Department of Local Government and Communities.
