How advocacy works
We engage with older Australians in many ways.
We use a range of engagement processes to develop campaigns that resonate with older Australians and use these campaigns to lobby government to introduce changes that make a difference for you.
The primary means of engaging with older Australians is through the National Seniors website.
Here you will find information about our advocacy campaigns and activities and opportunities to get involved in campaigns. Various surveys, polls, petitions and focus groups will be featured on the website as part of our advocacy campaigns.
Be a part of what makes National Seniors great – our advocacy!
Members can make a direct contribution to National Seniors advocacy by joining our Advocacy Supporters Group.
When you join the Advocacy Supporters Group you will be asked to share your views by responding to polls and short surveys.
We will also send you invitations to participate in other advocacy activities, such as focus groups.
Support specific campaigns by signing up to campaigns on issues that matter most to you. By signing up you are showing your support for our efforts and will receive regular campaign updates via email. Each campaign will also have opportunities to get involved in different ways.
As the independent voice for older Australians, we know how important it is to share up to date, accurate information with you and the community.
If you haven’t done so already, subscribe to our Connect eNewsletter for regular updates.
