Active Ageing

Active Ageing Branding

Welcome to the Active Ageing Community Consultation

COTA Tasmania’s Active Ageing community consultation is a chance to let the Tasmanian Government know how we want to grow older in the place we call home.

Ageing is a process we all share, but its changes are experienced differently by everyone.  We all want to live a good life as we age. The Tasmanian Government wants to know what enables us to live the life we hope for, regardless of our age and cultural, social and physical resources. An Active Ageing Plan which responds to the needs, views and opinions of Tasmanians will result from the community consultation process.

Active Ageing is about more than being physically active. It is also about continuing to belong, be involved, learn and have a purpose as we age.

It is really important for us to hear what you think. There are various ways to be involved in our Active Ageing Plan consultation:

  • complete the Active Ageing survey – available online or in hard copy
  • fill out an Active Ageing postcard and tell us about your experiences of ageing
  • register your interest in joining a focus group discussion in your community
  • Tell us your story – What does growing older mean to you? What would you tell your teenage self about ageing? Stories should be around 250 words, and could be a poem or even an image

To pick up an Active Ageing postcard or to request a hard copy of the survey contact 6231 3265 or drop in to the COTA office.
