Liveable Communities Toolkit

Liveable Communities Toolkit


The Liveable Communities Toolkit has been updated in 2020. It has information for councils and communities to help Tasmanians of all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances to live safe, healthy and respected lives in their community.

Liveable Communities (also known as Age Friendly Communities) make sure that every part of community is safe, affordable, high quality, and easy to access or find information about.

The Toolkit includes information about:

  • What Liveable Communities are;
  • How they can be achieved;
  • Where to go for more information.


  1. What is a Liveable Community
  2. Tasmania’s Ageing Population
  3. How Do We Become a Liveable Community?
  4. Communicating with Your Community
  5. Engaging with Your Community
  6. 10 Easy Ways to Improve Your Community’s Liveability
  7. 5 Large Scale Ways to Improve Your Community’s Liveability
