Ministerial Seniors Roundtable

On 28 May 2020, Minister for Seniors and Veterans, Gordon Ramsay MLA, hosted a Roundtable with Ministers across Australia to discuss issues affecting seniors. The Roundtable focused on the impacts of social isolation and loneliness amongst seniors, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Commonwealth, states and territories agreed that the roundtable meetings continue as an ongoing intergovernmental mechanism to address issues affecting seniors across Australia which do not readily fall within the responsibility of another ministerial forum or council.
