What we do:
We recruit, train and develop older people as volunteer peer educators and community ambassadors to work with us to inform and be informed about issues affecting the quality of life of people as they age in Queensland.
Utilising the WHO Active Ageing Policy Framework, COTA Queensland advocates for age-friendly policies in health, security, participation and life-long learning.
We develop evidence-based policy positions through consultation with members and stakeholders. We participate in networks, forums and advisory groups to contribute to a better understanding of ageing.
We provide the Seniors Peak Service to the Queensland Government and input into the development and implementation of policies, programs and priorities for older people; disseminate information about initiatives for older people, and we work with non-government organisations to build capacity to deliver quality services to older people.
We manage Seniors Week and work in partnership with community organisations to plan the development and delivery of hundreds of events / or activities in local communities across Queensland.
