Liveable Communities Toolkit

Liveable Communities Toolkit

The Liveable Communities Toolkit supports councils and communities to create a supportive, inclusive, safe and engaging Tasmania for people of all ages, backgrounds and mobility. The Toolkit documents have information about what Liveable Communities are, how they can be implemented and where to go for more information. You will also find a PowerPoint as part of the Toolkit, which provides a starting point for council staff and community members to present information about Liveable Communities to council and community.

Liveable Communities benefit everyone, and COTA looks forward to helping to support councils and communities to enable all Tasmanians to live their best lives the way they want.

COTA regularly posts information for communities on the Tasmanian Liveable Communities Facebook page. This include information about programs and events in Tasmania, as well as national and international ideas and projects that support liveable commmunities.

Liveable Communities Powerpoint


COTA has also gathered useful resources about developing and implementing age-friendly or Liveable Communities. They include general guides and checklists, as well as specific resources for each of the World Health Organisation’s domains of liveability.

We would love your input to help us develop these Liveable Community resources so we can share them throughout the whole of Tasmania and beyond. Do you know of a website, program, article or some research that is great for Liveable Communities?

Email us at so we can add it to this resource list.
