Ageing is an inevitable process, so the quality of life that an individual experiences in their later years is of the utmost importance. With Ipswich’s increasing growth, it is anticipated that – like many regions of Australia - the proportion of our ageing population will also keep increasing.
Ipswich Council plays an active role in enhancing the wellbeing of all community members, regardless of their age, in alignment with the following principles:
The City of Ipswich is aligned with the overarching principles of the Queensland Government's vision of building an age-friendly state in which all Queenslanders, regardless of their age, can stay active and connected and contribute economically, socially and culturally. To this end, Ipswich City Council supports the Queensland age-friendly community strategic direction and action plan:
Ipswich City Council has partnered with Yellow Cabs make travelling to the shops and back easier and more affordable for certain residents. Eligible members of the community (seniors, people with disabilities and their carers) will be offered the opportunity of travelling by taxi from their home to their designated shopping precinct for only $2 each way!
You must be in receipt of a full Australian Government Age Pension or a full Disability Support Pension and your carer (if applicable) must be in receipt of a full Australian Government Carer's Allowance. In addition, you must reside in an approved suburb. See below for suburb listing and participating shopping centres:
Note: Bundamba residents can now travel to Booval Fair
