National Seniors has joined a powerful coalition of more than 20 high-profile organisations and individuals to help fight ageism and age discrimination in Australia.

The EveryAGE Counts campaign was launched in Sydney today by Robert Tickner AO (former federal minister and Red Cross CEO) and Dr Kay Patterson AO (Commonwealth Age Discrimination Commissioner).
