Queensland Seniors Month 2020
We will be Celebrating Queensland Seniors 2020 all month-long this August.
This year marks our 60th year celebrating Queensland seniors and we are busily working to delivery the best statewide event. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements.
Queensland Seniors Month provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation, and enhance community connections, aligning with the Queensland Government’s and Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland’s vision of building Age-friendly communities in Queensland.
Seniors Month aims to:
- improve community attitudes toward older people and ageing
- facilitate community participation including those from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- enhance community connection and intergenerational relationships.
COTA Queensland coordinates Queensland Seniors Month on behalf of the Queensland Government and receives funding to collaboratively plan, run and subsidise Seniors Month events and activities. Subsidy information will be made available soon.
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 Month, August 2020.
Subsidy applications are open now and will close Sunday 15 March. To find more visit www.qldseniorsmonth.org.au.
