Older People in Georges River

There were 35,300 Georges River residents who were 60 years old or older in 2021. This means that there was a higher proportion of people 60 years old or older living in Georges River Council area (23%) than in Greater Sydney (20.5%). 

Our approach

Georges River Council values and supports older people by:

  • Planning for the future needs of people as they age
  • Supporting 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
