CPSA Webinars

Don't be kept in the dark about how to keep the lights on

The focus of this webinar will be how to efficiently use energy without compromising health and safety.

Ms Porto Valente has been researching the causes, extent, impacts and possible solutions to energy poverty among older low-income households.

Ms Porto Valente has kindly allowed access to the presentation slides that were used during the webinar. The slides contain vital information and hyperlinks to other helpful resources.

On 10 December 2020, CPSA hosted its second webinar ‘Death by Webinar’. The title of the webinar does not mean you will die while watching but simply signals that this webinar covers issues to do with death and dying. CPSA staff were joined by Christopher Zinn, Board Member of the Cemeteries & Crematoria NSW and consumer rights and empowerment advocate to discuss all things death and dying.


On 12 November 2020, CPSA’s policy staff went through, in detail, how the pension is indexed every March and September. This webinar was recorded and is now available for viewing. Click the video above to watch the recording. Viewers can expect to gain an understanding of an important retirement income procedure that will be useful in planning for retirement.
