What will be expected of me?

You’ll be asked to attend two informal sessions (details below). Between the sessions, we’ll ask you to have informal conversations with 3-5 older people in your family, friendship group or community.

The first session will focus on building an understanding of the project, as well as what we’d like you to talk to older people about. It will be informal and interactive, run by the friendly team from The Australian Centre for Social Innovation.

The second session will be a debrief of the stories you heard, as well as hearing from the other story gatherers (there will be 7-8 others).

We’re particularly interested in hearing stories from people aged over 50 who are:

  • Culturally diverse
  • Have diverse gender and sexual identities
  • Have limited financial and non-financial assets.

When and where are the sessions being held?

Sessions are being held in Adelaide, Murray Bridge and Port Lincoln. The dates are as follows, with times and venues to be confirmed based on the needs of participants.

Remember, you need to be able to attend both sessions. We can’t take anyone who can only attend one session.

What’s the project about?

The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI) is currently working with Office for the Ageing to conduct statewide conversations with older South Australians to listen to their views and experiences of what it takes to age well in South Australia. The Australian Centre of Social Innovation is an independent, not for profit organisation.

By taking part, you’ll be helping to shape the future experience of ageing in South Australia, as well as how older people are supported to thrive within our communities.

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with Kelly Ann McKercher (Principal) on or on +61 8 7325 4994.
