The Seniors Advisory Group (SAG)
The Seniors Advisory Group is made up of interested community members that meets monthly in the Council Chambers. Chaired by Mayor Kerry Vincent, the group provides residents with the opportunity to have their say and help us to develop an age-friendly community which provides opportunities for seniors to live active and fulfilling lives. It also provides Council with information that can be used to support seniors, address the challenges and increase opportunities as people grow older within our community.
For more information about SAG please contact Council on 03 6269 0000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
