Our Work

Communications – refreshing all our printed materials, revamping our website to make it more accessible to you, enhancing our use of electronic communications, upgrading our newsletter, increasing our use of social media.

Policy – developing a series of ACT-specific policy positions in support of our strategic objectives, increasing our collaboration with other community organisations working towards shared goals, providing interesting volunteering opportunities.

Programs – working with the NRMA ACT Road Safety Trust to deliver an education and support program for older road users, providing peer-led information sessions on the new Consumer Directed Care Home Care Packages.

Projects – seeking feedback from Canberra residents on what makes their local area age-friendly and what they’d like to change – and using collaboration to achieve change.
