Since first initiated in 1960 by Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland, Queensland Seniors Week has grown substantially. So much so we are celebrating 60 years of recognition for Queensland seniors all month-long this August
Join us in celebrations during the state’s premier event for older Queenslanders, people of all ages and backgrounds will join together in celebration of the achievements and contributions seniors have made and make in our communities. Whether as volunteers or in the workforce, community leaders or carers, grandparents or advocates.
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 COTA Queensland’s vision of building an Age-friendly Queensland.
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.
