Are you a local leader or community group engaging mature age workers in your region? Then we want to hear from you!
An ageing population is a key issue for many regional communities. With longer life expectancy, and many older Australians redefining what retirement means, more and more Australians are expressing a desire to work longer (whether that be part or full time).
But this can be challenging for older workers seeking employment, especially those over 55. It can be hard to get back into the workforce once you’re out of it, and difficult to scale down without retiring fully.
If your community or region is taking proactive steps to tackle this issue we want to hear from you. Whether it be a program for older workers to develop new skills, or developing a network to get older workers back into the workforce faster.
