Links to more information and support

The NSW Government is responsible for enhancing opportunities for older people across NSW and for providing access to mainstream services and facilities, like public spaces, transport, health care and social housing. However, we do not control other important areas that affect older people, such as aged care, income support and superannuation. These are the responsibility of the Commonwealth Government.

The following links may help you find the information you need:

  • My Aged Care for information about aged care services
  • Centrelink for information about income support, including the age pension
  • Carer Gateway for information for carers, including people caring for a parent or partner

The NSW Government also funds the following organisations to inform and represent older people in NSW. They may provide information and services that are useful to you:
