The NSW Ageing Strategy 2016-2020

Population ageing is changing life in NSW. Our economy, labour market, healthcare and other essential services, and the fabric of our communities are evolving.

The NSW Ageing Strategy 2016-2020 is the NSW Government’s commitment to respond to the opportunities and challenges of our ageing population.

Our vision is that people in NSW experience the benefits of living longer and enjoy opportunities to participate in, contribute to and be included in their communities.

We have five priority areas

  1. Health and wellbeing
  2. Working and retiring
  3. Housing choices
  4. Getting around
  5. Inclusive communities

Responding to the changes brought by an ageing population is everyone’s business. That’s why this Strategy takes a whole of government and whole of community approach. The NSW Government will work in partnership with the private sector, other levels of government, and the community.
