Joanne Gumbrell, Chair of the Age-friendly Advisory Group says, “It was great to see such a diverse range of people come along to the launch today and it’s heartening to see a high level of support for the plan from the community. I was delighted to see the interaction between the audience and the Minister and we appreciated the time she spent listening to people’s concerns and ideas.”
