The focus of COTA Victoria’s role in providing information has always been that information can empower older people to identify and act on the appropriate options to meet their own goals.  Information that is timely, independent, accessible, reliable and relevant can assist with making informed decisions about some of the most important areas of life – ‘good information makes for good decisions.’

With this in mind (COTA) Victoria established an information service in 1963, then known as Seniors Info Plus. The partnership with the Victorian government in information provision began in 1999 – the International Year of Older Persons, with the development of the now key service for information provision to older people- Seniors Information Victoria (SIV).
