Seniors Week 2016 subsidy applications close 31 March

17 February 2016 –

I am writing to encourage local community organisations to get involved in this year’s Seniors Week celebrations.

Seniors Week is Queensland’s biggest celebration for older people in the community. It runs from 13 to 21 August 2016 and this year’s theme is It’s on for young and old.

The Queensland Government is providing subsidies of up to $1,000 to run activities and events that celebrate older people and help build stronger relationships between Queenslanders of all ages.

These subsidies are a great way for local community groups to help fund events that celebrate older residents and get the whole community involved.

The Council on the Aging (COTA) is coordinating Seniors Week – for more information contact COTA; email seniorseek@cotaqld.org.au, visit www.cotaqld.org.au, or phone 1300 738 348.
