41% of Gore District's population were aged over 50 in 2017.

Actively Ageing

Eastern Southland's population is steadily ageing and we are shaping the future to make our town a better place to live.

Proactive attention to this fact now will ensure that Eastern Southland remains a great place to live for all ages. Older people bring enormous value to the community in many ways.

The Ready for Living project will ensure that barriers to their participation are minimised so the benefits of Rural City Living are enhanced, maximised and enjoyed by all ages.
