Celebrating Queensland Seniors 2020
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic subsidies for events in 2020 will be held over until 2021
COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone. We have been working closely with the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors to ensure the safety of the community with regards to planning this year’s Seniors celebration. It’s important that we stay socially connected whilst we are physically distanced.
The decision has been made that the 2020 Seniors Week subsidies will not be awarded this year and will be held over until 2021 when we can come together to host a range of events and activities when restrictions on large gathering has eased.
This year we will be celebrating Seniors Week, 15-23 August, and for the first time in 60 years it will be held as a virtual celebration. This will enable people to celebrate in a safe way and access events and activities they may not have previously been able to.
