YOURLifeChoices is delighted to have received the Older Persons Speak Out (OPSO) Special People’s Choice Award for the YOURLifeChoices website, and enewsletters at the Media Awards Presentation at the Queensland State Library on Monday 23 November.
As older Australians embrace new technology, the need for accurate, unbiased and simple-to-understand information online is increasing. The YOURLifeChoices team strives to offer reliable and independent information to its 20,000+ enewsletter subscribers and 165,000 monthly website visitors.
In accepting the award on behalf of YOURLifeChoices, it is important to acknowledge the work of the original founders of the website, Ged, Judy and Greg Lawrence, and their magnificent vision of a site inclusive of all older Australians keen to stay connected online.
Since its purchase by David and Kaye Fallick in 2005, YOURLifeChoices has continued to provide information on life’s four key pillars: health+wealth+travel+work, while remaining acutely aware that the vast majority of older Australians rely on the Age Pension as their sole source of income. By helping subscribers to understand the need to plan for later years, YOURLifeChoices aim is to empower individuals to make the best choices they can to create a sustainable life-income – and enjoy active and productive later years.
This website will only ever be as good as the support and feedback offered by our visitors and subscribers, so this is a sincere thank you to all who share their thoughts, ideas and criticisms.
The YOURLifeChoices community is expanding – watch this space for further opportunities to earn, learn and return (your wisdom).
A very big thank you for helping us win this OPSO award!
Debbie, Drew, Corey, Ellie, David & Kaye
