National Secretariat for Elders has been established under the Protection of the Rights of Elders Act No. 09 of 2000. The office of the National Secretariat for elders implemented diverse programmes and projects throughout Sri Lanka for the wellbeing of elderly population in the country. Our foremost intention is to prevent the elders leading a solitary life and to enhance their participation in the society.
To take people of Sri Lanka towards an active, productive and dynamic ageing through caring.
To encourage participation of older persons on social development and to ensure their independence, care, participation, self-fulfilment, dignity and to protect the rights of elders through awareness programmes.
