Victoria’s City of Port Phillip is shining a spotlight on ageism in the region by supporting the EveryAGE Counts campaign to tackle acts of ageism against older Australians.

In August, Council formally endorsed a Notice of Motion to support the EveryAGE Counts campaign in a bid to end ageism and join with others in our communities to create a society where every person is valued, connected, and respected, regardless of age.

At the recent launch of the Port Phillip Seniors Festival, Mayor Louise Crawford signed a pledge to stand for a world without ageism, where all people of all ages are valued and respected and their contributions are acknowledged to raise awareness of the impacts of ageism.
