Recipients Announced

Seniors Week, to be held this year from 13 -21 August, is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to come together to celebrate the valuable contributions older people make to our communities.

Requests for subsidies this year were significantly greater than the funds available and   regrettably we have not able to provide subsidies to every applicant.

Businesses and corporations are encouraged to get involved by assisting and supporting events in their area.

Seniors Week can only be a success through the hard work and efforts of people and organisations throughout the state and we are looking forward to working with everyone.

All event organisers can utilize and access the online events calendar as well as a number of resources will be made available to download and print to assist in promotion of events.

This year’s Seniors Week continues with the theme  It’s on for young & old as this is a great opportunity to further develop intergenerational connections within your community.
