Work on the Information Development Plan (IDP) for Ageing is progressing with the Phase 1 consultation process underway. These consultations are occurring in each capital city over the period March to early May 2006. Key stakeholders from Federal, State and Local governments, research and community organisations have been invited to participate.
The information collated from these workshops will be analysed in conjunction with the key priorities already identified by the National Ageing Statistics Advisory Group. Priorities currently identified include: housing and the built environment; community and social participation; retirement; labour force participation; health and care; and the impacts of ageing on population sub-groups.
A draft IDP will be prepared and provided to a wide range of government, academic and community organisations for further comment prior to publication of the plan. This broader community consultation is expected to occur in August and September 2006. If you would like to be involved in this consultation round, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with IDP Consultation Phase 2 in the subject line.
We would welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback that you may have on this newsletter or the Ageing theme page. Please email email@example.com and let us know what you think.
