Seniors Week 2012 will be celebrated from 18–26 August.
Seniors Week is an opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages and backgrounds to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of seniors.
Seniors Week aims to:
- improve community attitudes towards older people and ageing
- facilitate community participation and activity by older people, including those from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- enhance community connections and inter-generational relationships.
Each year, the Queensland Government supports community groups to celebrate Seniors Week by staging their own events. In 2012, community groups will hold more than 40 Seniors Week events across the state. Find out more at www.communities.qld.gov.au
