The Wicking Symposium is a part of the Trust’s contribution to actively supporting the collaborative search for answers to the issues and challenges facing ageing Australians and those with Alzheimer’s disease to age well and die well. The Wicking Trust’s approach to achieving this change has evolved over time and continues to evolve.

In 2022, we will be bringing the Wicking Trust’s grant partners together to share knowledge; lessons learned, and outcomes achieved.
However, there will not be a symposium.

As Australia’s leading trustee company, Equity Trustees is proud to manage the Wicking Trust and promote the work it supports.


Members of the Wicking Strategic Review Panel are leaders in their respective fields with a wealth of knowledge and experience covering aged care, dementia care, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegeneration research and care, palliative care, and communications. Rather than making grant recommendations, the Panel provides strategic advice to the Trustee of the J.O. & J.R. Wicking Trust on national and international trends, issues and priorities in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease policy, practise and research. The Panel members also play a critical role in designing and staging the Trust’s annual Symposium..
