Cost of Living pressures survey

Cost of Living pressures survey

Late in 2022, a Select Committee  was set up to enquire into and report on the cost-of-living pressures being faced by Australians and the impacts these are having on their day to day lives.

COTA Australia is preparing a submission. As the national peak body representing older Australians, we are interested in hearing from people aged 50 years and over.

We want to hear from you.

If you are interested in contributing to COTA Australia’s submission, we invite you to complete the survey below.  It should take 15 minutes.

How will we use this information?

What you tell us will assist in shaping COTA Australia’s submission to the select committee. After the inquiry, the submission will be available on our website.

How will we safeguard your privacy?

We will not share any personally identifying details with any third party be it individuals, groups, organisations and/or government.
