Transportation, including accessible and aﬀordable public transport, is a key issue for people in later life.
Housing and support that allows people in later life to age comfortably and safely within the community to which they belong are universally valued.
Social participation is strongly connected to good health and wellbeing throughout life.
Older people from all backgrounds are valued and respected.
An age-friendly community provides options for people in later life to continue to contribute to their communities.
Staying connected with events and people and getting timely, practical information to manage life and meet personal needs is vital for active ageing.
Community support is strongly connected to good health and wellbeing throughout life, alongside accessible and affordable health care services.
