National Seniors was established by a group of visionary Queenslanders in 1976. Now, almost 35 years on, with around 250,000 members, 150 branches, 70 employees and an office in every state, it is the consumer lobby for older Australians and the fourth largest organisation of its type in the world.
Providing unrivalled access to policy-makers, a raft of commercial benefits, world-class research and top-notch publications, National Seniors is everything the over 50s need to navigate the second half of their lives.
While the organisation stays true to its roots by giving older Australians – working and retired – a strong national voice, it also leads a new guard of seniors: the baby boomers who are already redefining what it means to grow old.
Six million Australians, or 40 percent of the voting population, are over 50. They join National Seniors for a single voice and to be part of something bigger.
