No young or older person feels unwanted or undervalued because of their age.
To connect generations, create meaningful employment for young jobseekers and increase the connectedness and inclusion of older people in our community.
Why we exist
Too many young and older people feel excluded, forgotten or unwanted in our community, simply because of their age.
- 2.5 million older Australians have felt ignored, unwanted or discriminated against because of their age.
- 4 in 10 older people experience loneliness or social isolation
- 580,000 young people can’t find an employer who will give them a chance, simply because of their youth and lack of experience
We exist to build a better future. One in which no person experiences exclusion or disadvantage because of their age, and in which all young and older people are supported to live meaningful, connected and fulfilling lives.
We believe that by connecting the many things that young and older people have to offer each other, and by bringing them together to support each other, we can enhance young and older people’s sense of worth, value and inclusion in our community, and build a society that better supports and appreciates people of every age.
