Age-friendly toolkit

The Queensland Age-friendly community Toolkit is your go-to guide to bringing age-friendly initiatives to life in your community.

This toolkit introduces age-friendliness and its benefits, as well as the risks and missed opportunities that come with not being age-friendly.  It also provides tools and resources to assist with the development, implementation and evaluation of age-friendly initiatives, plans and programs. 

It has been designed for any organisation – including not-for-profit, business or government – to be able to apply the age-friendly approach easily, with inspiring examples from Queensland beyond.

How to navigate the toolkit

When using the toolkit, you can start at the beginning and work your way through, or simply pick the sections that are of interest to your organisation or community.

Each section includes helpful tips on simple, low-cost ways you can bring age-friendly to life.
