Life stages strategy

We have prepared a draft Life Stages Strategy to ensure people moving through different stages of their life are supported, connected and well.

The draft strategy outlines 3 priority areas:

  • Health, wellbeing and safety
  • Learning, participation, jobs and enterprise
  • Partnerships, services and infrastructure

What will the strategy do?

The strategy will lead the collective efforts of service providers, planners, policy makers and community towards improved outcomes for people in all stages of life in Mitchell Shire.

It is a framework to ensure that people are valued, supported, connected, resilient, healthy and well as they transition through the stages of life.

The Strategy draws on a number of community consultations including:

  • Community Wellbeing Survey (2017)
  • Youth Survey (2017)
  • Age Friendly Communities Project (2018)
  • Your Budget Ideas (2019‑2020)

The strategy also responds to changes in International, Australian and Victorian government policy, our extensive experience in service and program delivery, consultation with a broad range of community members and organisations as well as research and data analysis.
