    Community Forum: Are Victoria and the City of Port Phillip Ageing Well?

    A community forum, hosted by the Port Phillip U3A, will be held on Saturday 12 October 2-4pm on the subject Are Victoria and the City of Port Phillip Ageing well?

    The City of Port Philip (CoPP) has an ageing population. Between 2011 and 2016, in percentage terms, the population in Port Phillip aged over 50 years grew over twice as fast as the population aged under 50 years - 18.7% compared to 7.5%. The percentage of population over 50 years in 2011 was 34.6%, whereas the percentage of population over 50 years in 2016 was 39.4%.

    Issues to be canvassed include aged care, health, housing, loneliness, homelessness, infrastructure, public transport, and community safety.

    A strong lineup of speakers is promised including The Hon Luke Donnellan MP, Minister for Child Protection and Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, Dick Gross AM, Mayor of the CoPP, and Professor Georgina Tsolidis, Chair, Older Persons Consultative Committee of the CoPP.
