The Older Working Life Project: employment support
This grant will provide peer-based support and training for older people to re-enter the paid workforce with confidence and appropriate skills.
Council on the Ageing WA's vision is for a just, inclusive and equitable society for all older Western Australians, through advancing their rights, needs and interests.
Their prime focus is on advocacy by contributing to major reform proposals. Advocacy successes include acquiring significant concessions for seniors, especially free public transport during the day and rebates for acquiring safety screens and doors.
