Aged & Disability

Manly Council is responsive to the needs of seniors and people with a disability.

That extends to their families and carers as well as the professionals working with them. Council's Community Development staff make sure this responsibility is carried out in order to improve the lives of seniors and people with a disability in the Manly area.

  • Provide information on services and programs for seniors, frail aged, people with a disability, and their families and carers, and information on Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) services and programs.
  • Plan for and facilitate the development of services for these groups.
  • Coordinate a Seniors Festival program each year.
  • Update information guides for seniors on services, leisure and learning activities, and retirement housing.
  • Supports local seniors groups.
  • Facilitate the Manly Meals on Wheels Service.
  • Represent Council on appropriate committees, networks and forums in relation to seniors, people with a disability, and people from CALD backgrounds.
