The artwork featured here and throughout the Growing Old in Kempsey report was drawn by Stephen McLeod during the Joint Action Planning Workshop held in South West Rocks on 3 December 2018. We are grateful for Stephen’s permission to share it with you.

Summary cover

GROWING OLD IN KEMPSEY - ABORIGINAL PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEIR AGEING NEEDS (2016)

In 2015 the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) engaged Moreton Consulting to undertake a deep community consultation on the needs of Aboriginal people in Kempsey as they age. 

A local advisory group of Aboriginal people, mainly from relevant services, was set up to co-design and oversee the consultation. 30 Aboriginal people were interviewed across nine locations in the Kempsey district. In addition, 14 people from the 9 services on the advisory group were interviewed. This is what we found.
