In 2016 and 2017, COTA Tasmania spoke to older Tasmanians across the state about what they enjoy about ageing in Tasmania and what they find challenging. Based on this, COTA wrote the following documents:
- Active Ageing Plan Background Document: what older Tasmanians told COTA
- Active Ageing Plan Strategic Directions Paper: recommendations for Government, based on what older Tasmanians told COTA.
The Tasmanian Government used this information to develop its ‘Strong, Liveable Communities – Tasmania’s Active Ageing Plan 2017-2022 that is “...the Tasmanian Government’s commitment to support people to maintain their health, increase their participation, continue to learn, and feel secure as they age.”
COTA Tasmania is looking forward to work with the Tasmanian Government to bring this Plan to life and make sure that we can all grow older the way we want, in the place we call home.
The Active Ageing Plan is a collaborative effort between the Tasmanian Government and COTA Tasmania
