COTA NSW policy development

We consult closely with people over 50 to develop our policy positions


Developing policies that make a difference to older people of NSW

Good policies have a major impact on people's lives. When implemented, a good policy can be transformative. But too often, policies are developed and implemented by Government without considering the impacts they will have on older people.

Good policy begins and ends with community consultation

COTA NSW is the peak body in the ageing sector and a respected player in the policy field. We are unique as an organisation because our policy positions and recommendations are based on extensive community research.

As a result, when we present our policies to politicians and policy makers, they know they are directly informed by the people of NSW.

We are pleased to provide you with several policy position statements that we have produced during 2018.  We look forward to adding more to our website in the coming months.
