A number of initial contacts have been made with agencies and government departments in Queensland. The key initiative the project has been involved in so far is two government Inquiries looking into housing for older people. These are the Department of Housing and Public Works Inquiry on the needs of older people and their housing and the Advisory Taskforce on Residential Transition for Ageing Queenslanders. The project has provided submissions to both Inquiries and we will soon be following up to continue working with the Queensland Government as they hopefully develop strategies in each of these areas. The submissions will be soon available on our website.
Ageing on the Edge is a project of Housing for the Aged Action Group, University of Adelaide and the Wicking Trust
