As the number of Australians aged 50 years and above increases, it is becoming more important to understand how these senior Australians view their own lives, as well as life in Australia more generally.

As the largest membership organisation for over 50s in the country, National Seniors Australia is uniquely placed to gain insight to the wellbeing of older Australians.

The aim of National Seniors Research is to advance knowledge and understanding of all aspects of healthy ageing to improve the quality of life of people aged 50 and over.

Based in Canberra, National Seniors Research is co-funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health, and plays a pivotal role in bridging the gap between traditional academic researchers in ageing, the community and decision-makers. Our broad research purpose is to “emphasise the positives of ageing and an ageing society, as well as flag the challenges”.

National Seniors Research meets its objectives through:

National Seniors Australia also provides research and consultancy services to government, business, universities and the not-for-profit sector to better understand many aspects of life affecting the over 50s demographic.
