Seniors Festival on the Central Coast

NSW Seniors Festival is the largest event for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere. Previously known as Seniors Week, NSW Seniors Festival now extends beyond one week of celebrations.

The event aims to celebrate seniors and their contribution to family, friends, workplaces and the community. It also provides opportunities for seniors to get together and to promote and celebrate the diversity of older people on the Central Coast.

Central Coast Council has put together a calendar of events throughout April. Take your pick from the many library activities, art, entertainment, sport, concerts, demonstrations, workshops, day trips, health and fitness, and technical classes.

There is something for everyone.

Senior Services

There are a range of services and initiatives designed to encourage older residents to have an active lifestyle and improve their health and wellbeing in the Central Coast region.

Central Coast Council follows the NSW Health Ageing Framework and its six key areas for action:

  1. Attitudes to ageing and older people;
  2. Participation in community life;
  3. Making your own decisions;
  4. Supportive neighbourhoods and communities;
  5. Health, accommodation, care and support; and
  6. Making the best use of resources.

In addition, the Central Coast Council has a Positive Ageing Strategy which aims to support older residents to lead healthy, active and independent lives as they age, enhancing participation and quality of life. The Positive Ageing Strategy is made up of six key strategic priorities:

  1. Staying Health - Older residents have opportunities to engage in and maintain a healthy lifestyle and access to quality and affordable health services.
  2. Being Involved -Older residents have opportunities to actively participate in community life and feel valued for their contribution.
  3. Getting Around - Older residents can move easily and safety around the community.
  4. My Community - Spaces and places within our community are age-friendly and support active ageing.
  5. My Home - Older residents have access to housing which enables them to age in place and are well informed of housing options available to them as needs and/or circumstances change.
