Queensland Seniors Week 17-25 August 2019
Seniors Week has grown so much that we created it’s own website!
Seniors Week 17-25 August 2019, 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 Queensland Government, the program provides $100,000 to subsidise events and activities held during Queensland Seniors Week.
Applications are open for eligible organisations to apply. Get in quick as applications close 7 April 2019. Find out more visit www.qldseniorsweek.org.au.
