Purpose

1.       To agree on the Seniors Advisory Panel’s recommendations regarding transport in Auckland.

Executive Summary

Comments

1.         This report provides an update on the panel’s programme of work and advice provided.

2.         The document Tāmaki Makaurau E Tū: Working to End Violence in Auckland includes an action on elder abuse to be led by the Ministry of Justice: ‘Participate in Ministry of Justice “Stronger Response to Family Violence Review”.’ In response to questions from the Seniors Advisory Panel, Arts, Community and Events has advised that the department is committed to advocating to the Ministry of Justice and other central government agencies to ensure this action is prioritised. 

3.         Libraries and Information acknowledges the panel’s input on Libraries’ planning for International Day of Older Persons (IDOP) 2016. The signature library event will be a performance of Bookends, choreographed by Susan Jordan and performed by a company of seniors in six libraries on 1 October: Mount Roskill, Mount Albert, Parnell, Onehunga, Central City and New Lynn libraries. This will be a dance starring ten older people which is designed to raise awareness of IDOP and show that anyone can dance, regardless of age.

4.         There will also be grandparents’ storytimes in more than ten libraries including Mount Albert, Parnell and Takapuna. Several libraries are hosting the senior women’s choir Epiphany and others are hosting morning tea and book group sessions themed around IDOP. Libraries also consulted other advisory panels on its IDOP planning to gain diverse viewpoints.

5.         On 25 August 2016, the governing body received a report on the achievements of the Disability Advisory Panel. The report referred to a workshop co-hosted with the Seniors Advisory Panel.

6.         Accessible housing is an important issue for people with disabilities. The Disability Advisory Panel and the Seniors Advisory Panel jointly organised a workshop on the issue on 16 October 2015. The primary purpose of the workshop was to encourage Panuku Development Auckland to consider accessible housing for people with disabilities and older adults. One of the workshop outcomes included the commitment of Panuku Development Auckland to the Disability Operational Action Plan.

7.         The panel’s request to speak on Housing for Older People at the governing body on 28 July 2016 was declined. On 25 August 2016, the governing body approved a partnership for the management and operation of the Housing for Older People service and adoption of a High Level Project Plan.

8.         On 16 June 2016, the Finance and Performance Committee resolved (Resolution Number FIN/2016/89) to “request the chief executive to initiate a review to determine the need for and possible location of a suitable community hub for senior and other community groups, involving Community Facilities and seeking advice from the Seniors Advisory Panel.” As such, the Lead Officer is arranging a discussion between Community Facilities staff members and the Seniors Advisory Panel about a suitable community hub for senior and other community groups.
