Seniors Week

Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people. In 2016, Seniors Week will be celebrated from 13-21 August.

To build on the success of the past 2 years, the theme for this year will be:

'It’s on for young and old'

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 subsidies up to $1,000 are open from 1 February 2016 until 31 March 2016.

This initiative aligns with our vision to build an age-friendly community.
