We use a range of sources to inform our positions, statements and submissions. They include the things people have told us during our ongoing consultations, surveys, and in feedback on our programs. We also draw on research evidence, what we hear through collaborative work with other community organisations and the many committees, forums, and advisory groups we attend. We also draw on policy and practice developments around Australia and the world to help us stay on top of the latest ideas.
We work hard to ensure that our advocacy and policy activities and positions:
- are determined by and with older people and their organisations
- are informed by the viewpoints and lived experience of diverse older people
- are supported by research evidence
- promote human rights principles
