National Seniors was established by a group of visionary Queenslanders in 1976. Now, more than 40 years on, with over 130,000 members, 120 branches, and 50 employees, 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.
6.9 million Australians are now aged 50 years and over. They join National Seniors for a single voice and to be part of something bigger.
