Retirement Housing Campaign Events

25 Oct 2023

Join the Eastern Affordable Housing Alliance for an optimistic and engaging discussion about solutions to older women’s homelessness in Melbourne’s eastern region.
Can retirement villages and Independent Living Units can support older women at risk of homelessness? How we can tap into under-utilised buildings and homes to unlock much-needed housing supply? Join the discussions at Maroondah Federation Estate in Ringwood

If you, a friend, a family member or a client are looking into a retirement village, a lifestyle park, a rental village, a residential park or a caravan park come along for a general understanding of the different housing types, their pros and cons and their similarities and differences. The presentation will also cover information on where you can go for assistance if you are a retirement housing residence who needs support, information or advice. It will also discuss campaigning in the retirement housing sector, and how to become a member of one of our action groups to change the system!

Do you live in a residential park in Victoria? We want to hear from you! What needs to change to make residential parks work better for older renters? This will be an opportunity for the Commissioner for Residential Tenancies and other policy-makers to hear directly from residents about the good and bad in this type of housing.

The Victorian Government is releasing its long-awaited Options Paper, outlining ideas for reforms to the Retirement Villages Act. HAAG will be making a submission about what our members and clients want and need from this review, and we invite members who live in retirement villages to share their ideas and priorities.

The Retirement Villages Act is under review.  We are holding a meeting of residents to discuss HAAG's submission and assist people to make their own submission if they want to.

Are you aged 50 years or older?

Do you live in Victoria?

Do you currently live in a Retirement Village?

If so, you're invited to an afternoon tea to hear about some new independent research by the University of Melbourne to find out what information people use to help them decide to move into a retirement village.  You will be asked to complete an anonymous survey which asks questions about what information you used to help you make a decision, how easy it ways to understand and how accurate it turned out to be.  The information you provide will be used as input into the review of the Retirement Villages Act.

WHEN: Thursday 3 October 3.00pm-4.30pm

WHERE: Haydn Raysmith Room, Level 4 Ross House, 247-251 Flinders Lane Melbourne 3000

This project has been made possible by a research grant from Consumer Policy Research Centre and Residents of Retirement Villages Victoria. 

If you have any questions about the research or the survey please contact the project manager Dr Sue Malta on 0409 433 077 or
