Time is running out to have your say on Napier’s Positive Ageing Strategy.

Like most of New Zealand, Napier’s senior population is growing and we need to plan so our city supports this change.

The draft Strategy, which covers the years 2019-23, considers the growing ageing population and the impacts this may have on Napier. It has seven city-wide priority areas that contribute to its overall vision of "Living Well, Ageing Well - Kia Tika Te Ora, Kia Tika Te Tipu".

The Strategy has been developed in collaboration with, and advice from a Steering Group of representatives from agencies and providers who offer services to older people in Napier. It also has input from a Reference Group of residents with a lived experience of ageing. Just over 10,000 people aged 65-plus live in Napier. In 20 years' time, possibly earlier, one in four, or just over a quarter of Napier’s population will be aged over 65.

Copies of the Strategy are available at Napier’s libraries and Council Customer Services Centre, and online.
