Positive Ageing Strategy

The West Tamar Council Positive Ageing Strategy (PAS) is designed to create a platform that will support and value the residents of the West Tamar Community as they grow older, and to build opportunities for partnerships, planning and participation for positive ageing. The research and formulation of the West Tamar Council Positive Ageing Strategy 2022-2027 has been undertaken by Council’s Community Services Department and community consultation has occurred through the West Tamar Positive Ageing Committee, with members representing a cross section of the West Tamar community.
