Applications now open for the new Senior Victorians Advisory Committee

The Minister for Ageing, Ingrid Stitt MP, is creating a new advisory committee for older Victorians to share their insights and lived experiences with government.
23 May 2024

Almost 1.5 million Victorians are 60 years or over – that’s 22 per cent of our state’s population. Our state’s older population is growing faster than any other age group.

The new Senior Victorians Advisory Committee will reflect the diversity of older Victorians and provide advice on the needs and rights of older Victorians and inform related government priorities and programs, including the implementation of the Ageing Well Action Plan.

The Ageing Well Action Plan 2022-2026 outlines 24 actions to support all Victorians to age well, as they participate in their communities, connect socially and live healthy, active, and purposeful lives.  

How to apply

Expressions of interest are now open to people 60 years and over, and First Nations people 50 years and over, who would like to share their views and make a difference.

The Committee will enable older people to provide advice on priorities, challenges facing older Victorians and emerging issues, in a space that is exclusively dedicated to them.
