In COTA NSW’s pre-budget submission for 2020-21 we look at the five areas of the Ageing Strategy and make recommendations about key outcomes that need to be achieved for older people. These include:

  • investment in low-cost programs that encourage older people to exercise
  • exclusion of employees over 50 from reportable payroll tax
  • a reduction of stamp duty for people aged 70+ who buy owner-occupied properties built to Gold Liveable Housing standard
  • maintenance, improvement and expansion of footpaths and cycle paths
  • recurrent funding for support programs for lonely, isolated and vulnerable older people.
