Seniors make a huge contribution to our community through employment, volunteering, grand-parenting, and guiding our future.

Seniors Month is a chance to celebrate the important role older people play in our community. This year, Seniors Month celebrates social connections. It’s about connecting people of all ages, cultures, and abilities. Read all about how you can become involved at qldseniorsmonth.org.au

Throughout the month of October people of all ages, cultures, and abilities will come together and connect, celebrating the essential roles that older people play in our communities.  All in all, it’s going to be a connect fest!
