COTA Queensland Community Education program provides seniors groups speakers on a range of topics and has done for over two decades. Sessions are delivered by peer educators, who are seniors themselves that volunteer their time and are fully-trained to talk to small community groups in a jargon-free and friendly environment.
The sessions are offered free of charge and run for one hour. The topics provide information that is accurate, independent and relevant to the needs of older Queenslanders.
Commencing from September this year until May 2019, we will be delivering community education sessions on the changes to the legislation governing retirement villages and manufactured homes in residential parks, including the requirements for operators and the protections for consumers.
Sessions will be offered in a range of locations including:
- Wide Bay region, and
- around South-East Queensland.

This program is a collaboration with the Association of Residents of Queensland Retirement Villages (ARQRV), Associated Residential Parks Queensland (ARPQ), Tenants Queensland, National Seniors, and the Park and Village Information Link (PAVIL) at Caxton Legal, and is funded by the Queensland Government Department of Housing and Public Works.
