Let’s Come Together Queensland!

Subsidy Applications are now open!

Queensland Seniors Week 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 Age-friendly communities in Queensland.

An age-friendly community is where older people are valued, respected and actively engaged in their community. They can stay in touch with people they care about and find the services and support they need. Age-friendly communities are more liveable for everyone.

During 18-26 August 2018, Seniors Week will connect communities, providing opportunities for people to share and learn new experiences, discover services and support, and assist in reducing social isolation.

With 718,000 people over the age of 65, Queensland Seniors Week is a major event.

Funded by the Queensland Government, the program provides $100,000 to subsidise events and activities held during Queensland Seniors Week.

On 1 March, not-for-profit, charitable and community organisations, schools, local government and libraries can apply for up to $1,000 to run activities and events during Seniors Week.

Download the subsidy guidelines today and apply by 31 March.

NOTE:  The 2018 Queensland Seniors Week subsidy awarded will not exceed 50% of the total cost of the event for a maximum of $1000.  Events held outside of Queensland Seniors Week, 18-26 August 2018, are not eligible to apply.
