Switched on Seniors program finishes up – for now
For the past few months, COTA Queensland has been running a peer education program on the changes to the electricity market, electricity pricing, how to shop around for a better deal, and electricity saving tips. The program was funded by the Queensland Government.
The program wrapped up in May, and in just a few short months reached over 740 seniors through 47 education sessions delivered by 12 peer educators. Over 2000 information booklets have been sent out for distribution.
The results were very exciting, with the vast majority of seniors participating in the sessions reporting they would shop around for a better deal, felt more confident to do so, and felt better informed about their rights. We are now seeking funding to continue the program.
