The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Age Friendly projects.
The first LG Professionals WA Age Friendly Communities Network Forum 2019 will be an opportunity to hear from a range of experienced practitioners about different Age Friendly Community projects - what's worked well, what hasn't and what went wrong!
A great opportunity for lessons learned from different speakers, with an interactive workshop facilitated by Peter Kenyon, (Bank of I.D.E.A.S.) to understand learnings in a collaborative and constructive forum.

with age friendly practice?
10.50 - Hand to Heart - A Partnership between local government and a non
for profit organisation, Antonella Segre, Connect Groups WA
The project aimed to connect socially isolated older people and is

11.10 - Play nicely in the sandpit together - that's the answer,
Heidi Cowcher, Shire of Williams
Regional collaboration can save local governments' money, increase
efficiencies and achieve long-term sustainability and development.
Proving the point is the 4WDL Well Aged Housing Project, a joint effort
between the Shires of Williams, West Arthur, Wagin, Woodanilling,
Dumbleyung, Lake Grace and Kent, which delivered 50 dedicated
independent living units for their communities.
11.30 - Working together - the partnership between Cities of Joondalup,
Stirling and Wanneroo,
Pauline Sookloll, City of Joondalup, Kate Burton, City of Stirling,
Louise Giles, City of Wanneroo
The Cities of Joondalup, Stirling and Wanneroo established a Regional
Age-Friendly Network group in 2016. The partnership is an important
platform for information sharing and discussion around opportunities
to collaborate. This has been a catalyst to develop a range of
Age-Friendly initiatives, which have been both challenging and rewarding
