It's on for young & old

Let’s come together Queensland!

Celebrating a Queensland for all ages,  Seniors Week 19-27 August 2017, provides the opportunity for older Queenslanders to explore programs and services, events and activities, connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, to celebrate the many contributions older people make in their communities.

Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland coordinates Queensland Seniors Week on behalf of the Queensland Government and receives funding to collaboratively plan, run and subsidise Seniors Week events and activities.

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.

Seniors Week aims to:

  • improve community attitudes toward older people and ageing
  • facilitate community participation including those from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • enhance community connection and intergenerational relationships

 

#GetLifelongReady

#GetLifelongReady: information and fact sheets to help people address the issues of different skill and confidence levels and how to tailor programmes for different age groups of participants.
