Age Action Budget Submissions to Government

Part of the remit of Age Action is to advocate Government and other bodies on behalf of older people. We have grown to become the leading advocacy organisation for older people - we are the “voice” of older people. 

Our current Strategic Plan (pdf) identifies four key goals. Goal 1 is that through our advocacy work we will effect positive changes in legislation, policies and services that affect ageing and older people.

This advocacy work includes Budget submissions. On this page you will find links to our most recent Pre-Budget Submission, prior to the Budget 2019 announcement in October 2018, as well as links to previous Age Action Pre-Budget Submissions.
