Positive ageing in Mitchell Shire

Mitchell Shire's Positive Ageing Ambassadors have developed a guide for older people in support of positive ageing — developed under the Age-Friendly Communities Project.

A Guide to Positive Ageing in Mitchell contains information relating to local services, activities and programs.

You can download the guide below, request a hard copy by phoning 03 5734 6200, or pick up a hard copy from any of our Customer and Library Service Centres.
