Research & Advocacy

OWN NSW is consumer orientation – asking older women themselves what they want – challenges the usual practice of professionals deciding what older women need. Using principles of peer education, training and support, older women encourage each other to become questioning consumers, to speak for themselves and to assert their different needs.

Members of OWN define the issues that are of primary importance to them as older women. Many of the issues remain or reoccur, or aspects of them, so strength and determination is required. If you are interested in contributing to this important work please join us.

For more information, please contact the OWN NSW Coordinator.
