Dr. Jane Barratt Receives Congratulations for Age-Friendly Interagency Workshop


Dr. Jane Barratt, the IFA’s Secretary General, recently presented at the Age-Friendly Interagency Workshop, held in June by the Government of Western Australia’s Department of Local Government and Communities.

The workshop was attended by more than 85 representatives from regional and metropolitan local governments, the not-for-profit and community service sectors, state government agencies, and academics. Participants gave positive, encouraging feedback, particularly in regard to their improved knowledge about age-friendly planning and developing successful collaboration models.

Dr. Barrett’s presentation, “What Is Age Friendly?” was well-received by participants, who participated eagerly in a question-and-answer period and expressed demand for further age-friendly workshops.
