Seniors Week 19-27 August 2017
Queensland Seniors Week 19-27 August 2017, provides the opportunity for older Queenslanders to explore programs and services, events and activities, connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, to celebrate the many contributions older people make in their communities.
Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland coordinates 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 Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, the program provides $100,000 to subsidise events and activities held during Queensland Seniors Week.
More information will be made available on 1 March 2017.
