HAAG has undertaken a number of projects that seek to improve older peoples housing outcomes through better access, increased options and improved services.
HAAG facilitate various meetings where groups of like-minded members work together to form policy submissions, recommendations and inform services working with older people. The lobbying of HAAG working groups has successfully created changes in government policy.

We have also produced our own films. HAAG Clients and members are supported to tell their stories when media opportunities arise.
