Summary of submissions report
This report summarises what people told us was important and what the new strategy for an ageing population should cover. The report highlights the significant themes raise by submitters during the public consultation that occurred between June and August 2018.
Our population is ageing
They are much more likely to remain in the workforce – and to want to.
Our country will be much more diverse, with an increasing proportion of older people who are Māori, Pacific or Asian.
We have developed short snapshots on key topics:
- Living longer, living well
- Working past 65
- Digitally advantaged?
- A place to call home
- Opportunity in diversity
- Getting out and about
- Ageing and disability
