DCJ leads the implementation of Ageing Well in NSW. We are also delivering a number of projects under the strategy. These include:
We are also supporting the delivery of other strategy projects through partnerships with not-for-profit and private sector organisations.
In 2020, we delivered a one-off grant program, Combatting Social Isolation for Seniors during COVID-19, that provided funding to organisations to create programs that fostered social inclusion for seniors.
The Modified Sports program offers low impact sports to help older people lead healthy, active and happy lives.
These are delivered in partnership with Football NSW, Netball NSW, Gymnastics NSW, Softball NSW, Basketball NSW, Table Tennis NSW, Hockey NSW and Dragon Boat NSW.
These modified sports give older people the opportunity to participate in lower-impact versions of these activities tailored for different ability levels.
The NSW Government has produced a Toolkit (PDF, 1.2 MB) that can be used to support other sporting codes to adapt their sports for seniors. The Modified Sports program evaluation (PDF, 1.4 MB) demonstrates the effectiveness of the program.
Tech Savvy Seniors supports older people to improve their digital literacy through low-cost or free training, and online resources for using new technology. It is delivered in partnership with Telstra and provides low-cost or free training so older people can learn to use technology such as computers, tablets and smart phones.
