The National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre (NSPAC) was established by National Seniors Australia (NSA) to advance knowledge and understanding into all aspects of productive ageing to improve the quality of life of people aged 50 and over. We play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between traditional academic researchers in ageing, the community and decision-makers. With access to over a quarter of a million members, National Seniors is uniquely placed to facilitate research into productive ageing and disseminate findings to the broader community. Based in Melbourne, NSPAC is co-funded by NSA and the Department of Health and Ageing. Our broad research purpose is to “emphasise the positives of ageing and an ageing society, as well as flag the challenges”.
National Seniors Australia, formed in 1976, is the only strong, independent voice for people aged 50 years and over in Australia.
