Melville Age-friendly Accessible Business Network

Supporting Inclusive Experiences

The Melville Age-Friendly Accessible Business (MAFAB) network consists of businesses committed to providing a supportive and inclusive experience for customers of all ages and abilities.

MAFAB businesses lead the way in being age-friendly and accessible, understanding the needs of their customers and welcoming older shoppers or those living with a disability, including dementia.

Benefits of MAFAB

  • Melville has the 2nd highest number of people living with dementia in WA
