Fairfield City Ageing Strategy

Fairfield City Council values the important contribution that our seniors make to the vibrancy of our community.

The Fairfield City Ageing Strategy (coming soon) sets out the strategic direction for Council in meeting the needs of older residents. The strategy was developed based on feedback from the community and key stakeholders, and provides clear direction to guide future services and priorities for Council.
