3 Oct 2019

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 susan.malta@unimelb.edu.au

HAAG are hosting a ‘Day of Action’ and we would like anyone living in Retirement Housing to be involved.

14 May 2018

Residents living in retirement housing who have problems with their managers may find it hard to get results. They may feel frustrated that complaints to Consumer Affairs Victoria go nowhere, that managers flout the law or trample on residents rights with no consequences.

In this two hour workshop, residents will hear about the types of issues that can be taken to the regulator Consumer Affairs Victoria and the best way to make your complaint count.
