COTA NT advocating for and working towards an age-friendly, just, inclusive and equitable society for all Territorians over 50
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. Seniors Month events encourage older people to have a healthy lifestyle, become involved in a new activity and connect to the community.
* Grants are administered by Territory Families. Dates may be subject to change.
ONLINE Any event registration received via the online event form by Thursday 15 June 2023 will be included in the printed calendar.
You can submit your activity to the online community calendar for August at any time thereafter, click here.
VIA FORM If you wish to register your event or activity n the printed Seniors Month 2023 calendar and are unable to use the online form, please download this SM23Event-Registration form and return to COTA NT in person or by email. Early submission is much appreciated.
Note: If space in the calendar is limited, preference is given to those events part-funded by Territory Families (NTG) via a Seniors Month grant.
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.
