Good policies have a major impact on people’s lives.
COTA ACT is the peak body for older people in the ACT and aims to influence ACT government legislation and policies, as well as community attitudes.
Our advocacy and policy initiatives are determined by older people in the interests of older people and aim to:
- Maximise the participation of older Canberrans
- Promote positive views of ageing
- Promote independence
- Reduce disadvantage and discrimination
- Protect and extend services and programs that are used and valued by older Canberrans.
Our policy committee meets regularly throughout the year to discuss the current issues in the ACT and develop policy positions that are up to date and relevant to seniors.
We welcome your input into our policy work. To find out more, or share your views, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
