Behind the glossy brochures and satisfaction surveys, unscrupulous retirement housing operators hide a dirty secret: they are making a fortune from retirement residents' nest eggs.

We are campaigning to

  1. Establish a Retirement Housing Ombudsman
  2. Put a stop to excessive fees
  3. Introduce mandatory minimum training and accreditation standards
  4. Reduce the complexity of contracts
