Part of COTA NT’s aims for Territory seniors is to provide and promote opportunities for social inclusion and age-friendly social participation activities in support of the World Health Organisation’s framework for age friendly cities (communities).
Our most regular activities focus on bringing groups with a shared interest together such as social bingo and musical jamming. Both groups meet regularly at Spillett House and enjoy access to air-conditioned and comfortable spaces, access to the kitchen and are asked only to make a small donation, if able, towards running costs. Groups are facilitated by COTA volunteers.
Regular opportunities to view movies with particular appeal to seniors are offered by Event Cinemas in Darwin and Palmerston. Event Cinemas is an active supporter of COTA NT (read more).
If you are a service provider or business wanting to sponsor or support a particular activity for seniors, please contact us.
If you want to offer a social event for seniors with (or without) the assistance of COTA NT, please read WHO’s checklist for age-friendly social events.
