Aligning to the aims of the program, Seniors Month provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation, and enhance community connections.
This aligns with the Queensland Government’s and Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland’s vision of building Age-friendly communities in Queensland.
We are still in the midst of planning and we appreciate your patience. Please check back often for news and updates.
COTA Queensland coordinates Queensland Seniors Week on behalf of the Queensland Government.
Both COTA Queensland and the State Government value the contribution older people have made – whether as volunteers or in the workforce, community leaders or carers, grandparents, or advocates.
How it all started
Who is COTA Queensland?
Our vision is that ageing in Queensland is a time of possibility, opportunity and influence.
We recognise the impact of systemic inequalities, disadvantage and discrimination on some Queenslanders as we age and are committed to speaking out on these issues to achieve our vision.
We work with older people, community organisations, service providers, peak agencies, researchers, Governments at all levels, and the COTAs around Australia to inform, advocate, and influence.
We advocate through membership of advisory committees, public statements, submissions, and support programs from other organisations that align with our objectives.
