NSW Minister for Ageing
As the NSW Minister for Ageing, Tanya is focused on addressing the challenges and opportunities that occur with an ageing population. She is passionate about tackling ageism and ensuring people in NSW experience the benefits of living longer, while having the opportunity to participate in and contribute to their communities. The ongoing implementation of the state’s first Ageing Strategy, delivered by the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government, is a top priority and involves a whole-of-government effort to help people not only live longer lives, but better lives. The Elder Abuse Helpline and Resource Unit is one of the important initiatives under this strategy. Tanya is a working mother, raising her two young children in Western Sydney with husband Mark. Prior to being sworn in as NSW Minister for Ageing, Mental Health, and Women, Tanya was Parliamentary Secretary for Youth Affairs and Homelessness, and has been the local member for Mulgoa since 2011.
