Fairfield Seniors Network

Fairfield Seniors Network is a forum for senior leaders, interested senior citizens and people working in aged services. It serves as a support network and provides an opportunity for seniors to voice concerns; share information and gather resources.

Participants are provided with the latest information about relevant legislation changes, are able to be informed on a range of issues and yearly are invited to share their expertise to work on local events or group activities.

The Network also plays an important role in drawing the attention of government departments, service providers and Council to the needs of local seniors.

All senior citizen groups are welcome to send representatives. Individual seniors and local workers working with older people who would like to become part of the team of professionals supporting senior leaders are also encouraged to participate.
