Retirement Housing Day of Action

17 May 2019

HAAG are hosting a ‘Day of Action’ and we would like anyone living in Retirement Housing to be involved.  We have made posters that say “I STILL need a Retirement Housing Ombudsman because…” and “I wish my Retirement Housing manager…”

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  • Write what’s important to you on the poster that we mail or email out to you
  • Have your picture taken holding your poster (you don’t have to show your face if you don’t want to
  • Send us your picture so that we can use it to promote your issues
  • Do it with a group of friends or residents together at your village, library, café or at your place
  • Do it at the HAAG office in the city with other HAAG members and residents
  • If you don’t want to take a photo, you can send back your poster to us and we will photograph it
  • If you want us to write your statement for you, call our office
  • Do whatever you feel most comfortable with – every little bit helps!

WHY?

  • So the government knows why retirement housing STILL matters.
  • So your concerns are heard and your voices are amplified.
  • Together we are stronger and out voices louder!

WHERE?

  • HAAG offices, Level 1, 247-251 Flinders Lane, Melbourne 3000
  • Where you live with other interested residents
  • With friends’ over a cuppa
