Planning Ahead campaign

Planning Ahead Week: 6 - 12 September 2021

Every year in September, Planning Ahead is promoted across South Australia. Office for Ageing Well in partnership with Legal Services Commission of SA (LSC), Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) and DonateLife SA (DLSA), encourages the South Australian public to complete the available legal tools to safeguard their future rights.

The week was inaugurated in 2014 and aims to raise community awareness and literacy about the benefits of early planning and the legal tools which can be used. It also aims to promote the uptake of these in the community to support individual choice in the event of loss of capacity or death, safeguard rights and safeguard against abuse.
