SeniorAu is a non-commercial, non-profit site providing the only up to date on-line news service on major issues and government policy for older Australians.
SeniorAu's intention is to produce information which is relevant and interesting to seniors. Much of what affects seniors is based on, or is influenced by Government policies at the Commonwealth, State and Territory level. Consequently, a proportion of the content of SeniorAu will talk about government policy and government performance related to seniors' matters.
