No Queensland cities apply to be 'age friendly'

NO QUEENSLAND communities have registered to be part of an age-friendly network, but New South Wales and Victoria each have six cities in the program.

Twenty-three Australian communities have registered to be part of the Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, which has been established by the World Health Organisation.

Communities can join by committing to becoming a better place for the elderly by providing environments that help people retain their physical and mental health.

The network has 300 member cities.
