Knox Over 55s Zest4Life

The purpose of Knox Over 55s Zest4Life is to support seniors to remain active and socially connected within the Knox municipality. We do this by providing information and referral to seniors to access community groups, events, facilities, programs and services as well as supporting groups targeting seniors to embed an active ageing approach to meet the changing, diverse needs and expectations of seniors.

Knox Over 55s Zest4Life is a community driven program that offers free and low cost events and activities. This is a new initiative for the Knox region and provides an insight into what’s on offer for Knox residents throughout the year and connects seniors with local clubs and community groups.

To view the November/December Knox Over 55s Zest4Life program, please refer to the brochure listed below. The January to April 2018 guide is also below. If you would like a hard copy, please contact our Customer Service on 9298 8000.

Program objectives:

  • decrease social isolation
  • increase awareness of opportunities for social and physical activities within the community
  • increase the membership and attendance of seniors groups
  • increase opportunities for networking with like-minded clubs and organisations within Knox

What criteria do activities need to meet?

  • promote active ageing
  • promote social inclusion and participation

We are interested in including activities that showcase positive and active ageing such as physical activity, open days, tours and walks, workshops, learning and entertainment.
