Project Description

Outdoor Spaces and Buildings

Urban landscape and the built environment significantly impact the age-friendliness of a region. The Illawarra has many examples of innovative public infrastructure that influences the mobility, independence and quality of life of older people and their ability to ‘age in place’.

Age Friendly Illawarra supports the achievement of age friendly outdoor spaces and buildings by scoping the scoping the physical spaces used and valued by older residents and developing relationships with the teams that manage outdoor spaces to encourage inclusion of all users in their planning. Each of our four local councils have ageing plans that incorporate age-friendly principles for outdoor spaces.
