The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) has established a new national office in Canberra to enhance its engagement with government, industry partners, and fellow researchers concerning issues affecting older Australians and opportunities for lasting change.

NARI, Australia’s only independent national research institute dedicated to ageing, has been devoted to improving the well-being of older individuals through research and evidence-based practice for nearly five decades.

This move aims to expand NARI’s presence in national discussions on ageing and decision-making processes.

“NARI’s focus is, and has always been, improving outcomes for all older Australians – so it only makes sense that we have a home in the nation’s capital”

NARI Director, Professor Briony Dow

By co-locating with COTA Australia in the National Press Club building, NARI intends to strengthen partnerships and collaborations within the ageing and aged care sector. The organisation seeks to raise awareness about ageing and amplify the voices of older individuals and caregivers.

NARI’s work in Canberra will complement its existing operations in Melbourne, all with the goal of promoting longer, healthier, and more productive lives for all Australians.
