Queensland Seniors Week

Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people. In 2018, Queensland Seniors Week will be celebrated from 18–26 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 backgrounds
  • enhance community connections and inter-generational relationships.

Queensland Seniors Week is coordinated by the Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland, which receives Queensland Government funding to collaboratively plan, run and provide subsidies of $100,000 in total to organisations across Queensland for Seniors Week events and activities.

From 1 March, not-for-profit, charitable and community organisations, schools, local government and libraries across Queensland can apply for subsidies of up to $1,000 to run activities and events during Seniors Week. Find out how to apply. Applications close 31 March.
