Older Persons Advocacy Network

The Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) is a national network comprised of nine state and territory organisations that have been successfully delivering advocacy, information and education services to older people across Australia for over 30 years.  Our network members provide free, confidential, and independent support to older people seeking or receiving government-funded aged care services, their families, and representatives across Australia. Together, we help older people understand and exercise their aged care rights, seek aged care services that suit their needs and find solutions to issues they may be experiencing with their aged care provider.

At a national level, we raise the voices of older people with governments, aged care providers and sector stakeholders to advance aged care reforms so that older people have a better aged care experience. We write submissions to Royal Commissions, Senate and parliamentary inquiries, participate in consultations and forums, develop responses to government policies and oversee our network to ensure national consistency in what we do.
