Older People

According to the latest Census there were 30,200 Georges River residents who were 60 years old or older in 2016. This means that there was a higher proportion of people 60 years old or older living in Georges River Council area (20.6%) than in Greater Sydney (19%).


Our approach

Georges River Council values and supports older people by:

  • Planning for the future needs of people as they age
  • Providing a wide variety of social, cultural and recreational programs
  • Working with and funding local community organisations and local seniors groups
  • Providing information and advice on services and activities for seniors to local residents
