Blacktown City Ageing Profile
The Blacktown City Ageing Profile 2012+(PDF, 10MB) outlines our plan to increase the range of opportunities for local seniors to effectively contribute to civic and community life in Blacktown City.
People aged over 60 constitute 14.9% of Blacktown City’s population. By 2036, it is predicted that people aged over 60 will make up 17.6% of our population. Demographic information, social issues and strengths can be obtained from our Older People Social Profile Snapshot(PDF, 3MB) .
While future older people will be healthier and more active for longer, many of them will still need domestic and personal support at home. We work with state and federal governments and local organisations to improve access and funding for these services.
We believe that older people are a valuable asset within our community and are committed to their active participation in our local community.
