Campaigns for change

Advocacy is at the heart of what we do

It's not just our services that make a difference. We’ve been boldly campaigning for a just society for all Australians for over 200 years.

We helped pioneer maternal and infant health care, we advocated for legal aid and abolishing child labour and led the campaign to introduce Australia’s first age pension.

We’ll always speak up for an Australia where everyone can live their best life.

Campaigning for change

Fairness, justice and no one left behind. That’s why we raise our voice through advocacy campaigns. We campaign on issues affecting children, families and older Australians. Our focus is on creating real funding, policy and legislative change so all Australians live their best life.

EveryAGE Counts

If you’ve been discriminated against or treated unfairly because of your age, you’ve experienced ageism. Your job prospects, finances, health and quality of life can all be affected. We’re joining forces with others to address ageism in Australia and change our attitudes to getting older and to older Australians.

Fix Pension Poverty

The Age Pension isn’t keeping up with the real costs of living. The 1.5 million older Australians who rely on it as their main income source are being denied a decent standard of living. Could you survive? Join us to call on the government to fix pension poverty.
