Next steps

We will continue to consult with older people and listen to their lived experience through the Commissioner for Senior Victorians and the Senior Victorians Advisory Group (SVAG). The Commissioner for Senior Victorians chairs the SVAG. Its membership includes peak bodies and organisations representing a wide range of interests affecting senior Victorians. Members of the SVAG have provided advice throughout the pandemic on the status of older people.

The SVAG will continue to track and advise on the needs of older Victorians. The Commissioner, with the help of the SVAG will undertake another survey of older Victorians on ‘ageing well’ in 2022. This survey will identify more opportunities to improve and support ageing well for all Victorians. The Commissioner will report on how we are travelling.
