Seniors Month is held in August each year in the Northern Territory and provides a great opportunity to celebrate the positive aspects of ageing and the contribution that Territory Seniors make to their community.
The objectives of Seniors Month are to:
As part of our work to support Seniors Month, we undertake the production and distribution of a printed and online Seniors Month calendar, as well as running a number ‘extra-curricular’ events in locations across the Northern Territory (see COTA NT’s calendar of events).
Territory Families administers Seniors Month grants.
Organisations and groups can apply for grants of up to $2,000 to help with running events and activities during Seniors Month in August. Grants are designed to help offset the cost of an event rather than cover the full cost. Funding is limited and not all applications may be successful. Even if you have previously been given a grant, you may not necessarily be given another.
