Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland is the peak body for Queensland seniors. COTA has advanced the rights, needs and futures of older Queenslanders since 1957. In 2017 COTA Queensland celebrated its 60th anniversary. COTA helps guide government legislation and policies to shape more supportive community attitudes towards ageing and older people. COTA helps foster social change by providing leadership and expert advice on ageing issues, working with other stakeholder groups across Queensland.
COTA Queensland strongly encourages all candidates to consider the recommendations detailed in the submission to ensure that older Queenslanders receive more effective support from the incoming Government as part of a more age-friendly Queensland.
