Around 32 per cent of people living in Hurstville City are over 50 years of age. Hurstville City's seniors take a very active role in the life of our community through their participation in volunteer and paid work, sport, recreation and the arts.
Hurstville City Council provides a range of resources and activities for older people and their carers in the Hurstville area. Council is also active in community development and social planning for older residents.
Council provides a general information and referral service for older people and fosters links between community, Council, State and Federal government and non-government to provide services that meet their social, physical and cultural needs.

Hurstville City Council has developed a Positive Ageing Strategy to help recognise what is needed to prepare for an ageing population. This document was developed with input and consultation with services associated with older people, local residents and key stakeholders.
