About the strategy

The Ageing Well in NSW: Seniors Strategy 2021–2031 (PDF, 3.4 MB) sets out the NSW Government’s ten-year plan to respond to the opportunities and challenges of our ageing population. It builds on the NSW Ageing Strategy 2016–2020 and initiatives already underway across government and the community. The strategy has four focus areas:

  1. Living in age-friendly environments
  2. Participating in inclusive communities
  3. Staying safe, active and healthy
  4. Being resilient and informed

How we’re putting the strategy into action

We will develop action plans every two years that bring together a comprehensive collection of activity across NSW agencies, focused on improving systems and delivering services to older people in NSW.

Read the second Ageing Well in NSW: Action Plan 2023-2024 (PDF, 7.8 MB) to find out how we are working together over the next two years.
