About COTA Australia
ABOUT COTA AUSTRALIA
COTA Australia’s mission is to:
- Promote, improve and protect the circumstances and wellbeing of older people in Australia as citizens and consumers.
- Be recognised by government, the general community and media as representing, advocating for and serving all older Australians.
COTA Australia promotes the concerns of older people at the highest level of government and associated organisations. See Representing You for a full list of bodies on which COTA represents consumers.
COTA Australia makes representation to Federal Government Ministers, Shadow Ministers and senior advisers on issues of relevance to older people. Its submission to the Productivity Commission inquiry “Caring for Older Australians” was used by the Commission as the guide text for its inquiry. For further information about COTA submissions go to Submissions and for information about this very important inquiry go to Aged Care Reform
COTA Australia develops innovative programs through a national unit dedicated to this activity. These programs are delivered throughout Australia. For further information see the Community Programs page.
