COTA NT’s Advocacy

Advocacy for senior Territorians

COTA NT’s advocacy for senior Territorians aims to effect positive social change. It helps ensure that seniors’ voices are heard on issues important to them.
COTA NT aims to defend and safeguard seniors’ rights and ensure their views are genuinely considered, especially when decisions are being made about their lives.

COTA NT has over 50 years of history in advocating for senior Territorians and ensuring their voice has a say in the development of public policy and legislation. We work towards making change through networks, through connections, and by lobbying and contacting governments, political parties, public services, the media and the public in general.
