Grants PositiveAgeing

Australia’s population is ageing and the number of Australians over the age of 65 is expected to more than double by 2055*. We are now faced with a challenge to create a society that fully understands the economic and social impacts of ageing and embraces the opportunity presented by this demographic shift. Equity Trustees will be funding initiatives that support positive ageing and aged care.
