An alliance of 20 organisations, led by COTA Victoria, are calling on the Victorian Government to create a vision for 21st century modern ageing that will guide a whole of government plan to improve the future for a growing number of older Victorians.
An Agenda for Ageing calls for practical action across government departments to address the following:
- valuing the contributions of older people
- health ageing and participation
- support and recognition of carers
- strengthening culture and supporting diversity
- access to services
- affordable, safe housing
- elder abuse prevention and response.
The coalition of organisations are calling for all political parties to support a bi-partisan plan for Victoria’s ageing population that will keep our older population contributing to communities and the economy and ensuring no one is left behind.
If your organisation would like to join the Agenda for Ageing Alliance, please contact Donna Swan firstname.lastname@example.org on 9655 2139
