Welcome to Working Longer, the website of the Brotherhood of St Laurence and University of Melbourne study into Understanding and preventing workforce vulnerabilities in mid-life and beyond.

The study is examining the relationship between people’s age and their participation in paid work over the course of their lives, focusing in particular on people in their mid-40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s who do not have a job but would like to have one (inclduing jobseekers and those not currently looking for paid work) or who are not working as much as they would like.
