We are holding a series of community conversations throughout the state and we want to hear from you!
Our population is ageing with more people living longer and healthier lives, so we need to build communities that support people to age well. Simply, when we create communities with older people in mind, we create liveable communities for everyone.
For over 60 years Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland has worked with older people to influence decision making and create positive social change. We promote older people’s rights and advocate to Government on issues that affect us all as we age.
We are working to create an age-friendly Queensland with vibrant, healthy and equitable communities for all ages. To inform this work we have been hosting a series of Community Conversations throughout Queensland to discuss what’s working well and what can be improved and how.
No one knows their community better than the folk who live it in and too often we have heard that people feel invisible and these conversations are aimed at giving people the space to tell us all about their communities and the opportunity to explore solutions to support them. The information gathered will inform our broader work, advocating to Government the issues and solutions at a localised level.
We invite people aged 50+ to come along and share their voice.
Refreshments will be provided.
