Seniors Month

Seniors Month – August

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.

Look back at the Seniors Month Calendar – August 2021 and previous calendars produced by COTA NT on behalf of the Northern Territory Government.

The objectives of Seniors Month are to:

  • Encourage older people to live healthy and active lifestyles all year round.
  • Demonstrate that older age can be a time of learning and adventure.
  • Celebrate older people and their continuing contribution to family, friends, workplaces and communities, and across generations.

COTA NT’s Seniors Month

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).

About Seniors Month Grants

Territory Families administers Seniors Month grants. 

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.

For more information contact Territory Families on (08) 8999 3894 or email .
