Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people. In 2017, Seniors Week will be celebrated from 19-27 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.
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.
Applications for 2017 subsidies are closed.
