People aged over 50 make up one third of the South Australian population – a proportion that is steadily increasing. What older people have to say matters and your voice is critical to our State’s future.

You are invited to participate in a dynamic conversation that will inform and influence an age-friendly future for South Australia.

The State-wide Conversation will reflect the diversity, creativity and vitality of older South Australians. It will acknowledge that the future of ageing will look very different to anything we have seen before, and that the older South Australians of today have a significant contribution to make to this state’s future.

The outcomes from these discussions will inform Office for the Ageing’s future work and that of government more broadly.

Why are we having this state-wide conversation?

The State-wide Conversation with Older South Australians is about government listening to the voices of older people across the state about what active and age-friendly communities mean to you.
