Freo recognized in Age Friendly Communities Award

I was proud to represent Fremantle at the Council on the Aging (COTA) and Department of Local Government and Communities  WA seniors awards 2015 today where we were a finalist in the Age Friendly Communities Award.

There are huge challenges with our aging population. It was said that around 2000 people a day in Australia turn 65 and 1000 a day turn 85. So great to see Fremantle programs recognized for their innovation.

Freo was recognized for the City’s Age Friendly City Plan and the great work the One Stop Shop does with over 55s.

Well done to the staff, especially Kay, and everyone else involved.
