The Department works to improve the health and wellbeing of older Victorians. The main focuses of its policies and programs are:

  • creating age-friendly communities through long term and sustainable age-friendly practices and outcomes
  • promoting healthy ageing, which includes optimising opportunities for health, participation and security as people age
  • supporting older Victorians as they transition from paid work into voluntary roles or part-time work, or retire.
