Award aims to tackle ageism 

3 June 2020

Are you an individual, community group or non-profit organisation actively working to challenge ageism and highlight the value of older people and ageing well?

If so, we encourage you to apply for the inaugural Office for Ageing Well Tackling Ageism Award in the SA Community Achievement Awards.

Office for Ageing Well and Awards Australia are looking for individuals and organisations that are working to confront and overcome discrimination against older South Australians.

Nominees must demonstrate an understanding of the pervasive nature of ageism, and what action they are taking to tackle it by breaking down barriers and busting myths and stereotypes so that South Australians, no matter their age, can live well.

The Office for Ageing Well Tackling Ageism Award is an early action under South Australia’s Plan for Ageing Well 2020 – 2025, which will be released in mid-June.

Nominations for the Community Achievement Awards will close on Tuesday 11 August. The awards will be presented in Adelaide in December.
