Seniors

Overview

Senior residents have a lot to offer the Launceston municipality. Their experience and knowledge, as well as their social contribution, help make our city an even better place to call home or visit.   

The Living as a Senior in Launceston Framework(PDF, 458KB) outlines our commitment to ensuring people can enjoy life in their senior years.  

We have a number of initiatives aimed at informing and involving seniors in the community, including morning tea sessions throughout the year, annual Seniors' Week events, tailored classes at the Launceston Aquatic Centre and a What's On calendar(PDF, 179KB).

Senior Framework Review

We're soon reconsidering the City of Launceston Living as a Senior in Launceston Framework and want your ideas around what's working and what could be improved. So we've created a survey to gain this feedback. 

The survey will open on April 3, 2017 and close on May 8, 2017.

Click here to access the survey on Council's online consultation platform, Your Voice, Your Launceston.

You can also collect a hard copy of the survey from our Customer Service Centre in Town Hall.
