Seniors Week – Celebrating a Queensland for All Ages 17-25 August 2019
Let’s come together Queensland!
Queensland Seniors Week provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation, and enhance community connections, aligning with the Queensland Government’s and Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland’s vision of building Age-friendly communities in Queensland.
During 17-25 August 2019, Seniors Week will connect communities, providing opportunities for people to share and learn new experiences, discover services and support, and assist in reducing social isolation.
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.
COTA 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.
Funded by the Queensland Government, the program provides $100,000 to subsidise events and activities held during Queensland Seniors Week.
This program supports the building of an age-friendly Queensland.
