Better Later Life Action Plan launched

Minister for Seniors Dr Ayesha Verrall has today launched the first Better Later Life Action Plan at the virtual Vision for Ageing in Aotearoa conference, setting out a pathway for a better future for older New Zealanders.

The Action Plan outlines the Government’s priorities and commitments for implementing the Better Later Life – He Oranga Kaumātua strategy over the next three years.

The actions will support older workers to use their skills and experience and build an effective multigenerational workforce. They will deliver suitable housing that meets the diverse needs of older people. It will also empower older people to embrace technology whilst ensuring that those that aren’t online are still able to access essential services.
