The ACT Government is launching public consultation on the future of the ACT Seniors Card Program.
More than 77,000 Canberrans aged over 60 benefit from the government concessions and local business discounts offered through the ACT Seniors Card Program.
“We are committed to fostering an age friendly city and we know that cost of living pressures are impacting older Canberrans. The purpose of this consultation is to ensure the Seniors Card Program is accessible and provides useful benefits to older Canberrans,” said Minister for Seniors, Emma Davidson.
“This is an opportunity for people to share how the card can be easier to use, what benefits they would like to see added and how their experience with the card has been.
“We also want to hear from businesses on their experiences as partners to the program and changes they’d like to see.”
As part of the broader review of the Seniors Card Program, McGrathNicol has been engaged to review the program and identify ways it can be improved.
Consultation closes February 2023.
