Our Vision, Mission and Values

Our Vision, Mission and Values


Ageing in Queensland is a time of possibility, opportunity and influence.


We advance the rights, needs, interests, and futures of Queenslanders as we age.


Respect – we respect and value the contribution and lived experience of people as we age and support each person’s right to make choices and participate in their community.

Diversity – we value the great diversity that characterises people of all ages and are committed to genuine exchange and engagement.

Collaboration – we communicate and work collaboratively with older people, with each other, with our partners and with the Queensland community to achieve COTA Queensland’s vision and purpose.

Integrity – we operate ethically, openly, honestly and with accountability in all our interactions.

Equity – we recognise the impact of systemic inequalities, disadvantage and discrimination on some Queenslanders as we age and are committed to speaking out on these issues to achieve our vision.
