This report was commissioned by FACS to gain an understanding of the experiences, needs, preferences and attitudes of people in the 60-79 age bracket, and their thoughts about ageing.

In 2015, Ipsos SRI was commissioned by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) to conduct research among 50-60 years to gain a better understanding of this cohort.

The focus was on their thoughts about ageing and their perceived future needs in key areas to ensure they are able maintain a good quality of life.

More specifically, the areas to be measured included: • Housing; • Health; • Transport; • Employment and retirement; • Volunteering; and • Liveable communities. In 2017, FACS commissioned a repeat of this study with two older cohorts: 61-69 year olds and 70- 79 year olds.

This report presents the results for the 2017 studies, and draws comparisons with the 2015 study where appropriate.
