Do you live in or near Gawler and want to help shape the future for older people in your area?

The Plug-in is delighted to be working with the Town of Gawler to develop an Ageing Well Framework that will be used to assist older residents to live healthy, enriched and connected lives — and we need your help!

So we can better understand the needs of older residents in and around Gawler, we are inviting local community members to help us explore and understand what ageing well looks like and feels like in the Town of Gawler.

The feedback and insights gathered will inform the Town of Gawler’s Ageing Well Framework and underpin the Council’s approach to delivering and overseeing program, actions and services that will best assist older people in the community to live life to the fullest.

If you are aged 50 years or over, live in or near the Town of Gawler and want to help create a brighter future for ageing residents, we invite you to participate in Stage 2 of this project.
