Seniors Week

13 - 21 August 2016

About the campaign

Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people. Seniors Week 2015 saw communities come together to celebrate with 737 events throughout the state.

Many older people assist their families with caring responsibilities whilst being actively involved in their communities through volunteering and passing on their knowledge and experience to others. Seniors Week provides an opportunity to bring together all Queenslanders, through events and activities, to celebrate the contributions seniors make within their communities.

Attend the Seniors Week launch by participating in the interactive forum:

An Aged Care Model for People Experiencing Homelessness

 

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.   

 

COTA (Council on the Ageing) Queensland currently coordinates Seniors Week and receives Queensland Government funding to collaboratively plan, run and subsidise Seniors Week events and activities.
