Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contribution of older people. In 2013, Seniors Week will be celebrated from 17–25 August.
Seniors Week aims to:
- improve community attitudes towards older people and ageing
- facilitate community participation and activity by older people, including those from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
- enhance community connections and inter-generational relationships.
Organising a Seniors Week event
Community groups and organisations are encouraged to hold events during Seniors Week that raise awareness of issues faced by older people and increase older people's participation in the community.
