Welcome to the first issue of Age Matters for 2005.

Planning is currently underway for the 2005/06 work program. A key challenge for the unit is to build a forward work program that meets the desired needs of ageing issues and the ageing community. Extensive feedback, environment scanning and consultation is sought from stakeholders in developing the work program for coming years.

A major activity for the coming year is the compilation of the Information Development Plan, as outlined in the last edition of Age Matters. For this issue we have provided a brief update on the status of the IDP and a reference to an education and training IDP.

Other useful reading in this issue includes information on caring and grandparenting from the Family Characteristics - (cat. no. 4442.0) and Disability, Ageing and Carers -(cat. no. 4430.0), released in September last year. Some interesting facts from the recently released ( 8 February 2005) Involvement in Organised Sport and Physical Activity, Australia - (cat. no. 6285.0).

I hope you continue to find this newsletter a valuable resource and we look forward to another busy and fruitful year.
