A LIVE RADIO FORUM HELD AT DEE WHY RSL, PRESENTED BY RADIO STATION 2UE FOR SENIORS TO DISCUSS ISSUES AFFECTING THEM AND THEIR CARERS.

There are a range of issues and challenges being faced by the ageing population.

The NSW Government recognised the importance of the ageing population in its state plan NSW 2021, and made a commitment to work with private and community organisations to ensure that services delivered meet the needs of older people in the community.

In 2012, the NSW Government launched the NSW Ageing Strategy which is now being implemented as a whole of Government, whole of community response to the challenges and benefits of the growing ageing population in NSW.

The NSW Government committed in its Northern Sydney and Northern Beaches Regional Action Plans to: “Work with local Government, community organisations and other stakeholders to develop a shared approach to support older residents of Northern Sydney to experience the benefits of living longer.”
