Northside Community Service (NCS) will launch the report Breaking Down the Wall: Barriers to Social Inclusion amongst Older Australians in Canberra on Monday, 10 May 2010.
Over the past 12 months, NCS has undertaken research aimed at creating a basis of awareness about various issues affecting social and community participation of older people living in Inner North Canberra. The result of this study is a report that examines the nature of social inclusion among people over 60 years, highlights the key barriers to social inclusion and explores gaps in services.
In addition to the presentation of the findings, this launch will provide an opportunity for networking and discussion of how the findings can be used to promote social inclusion amongst older Australians with discussion themes in line with the key priorities of the ACT Strategic Plan for Positive Ageing.
