Five generations are now living, learning, working and socialising together. In spite of negative views commonly expressed around ageing, older people make a significant and positive contribution to their families, their communities and the economy. COTA Victoria is part of a national federation ready to lead new visions of ageing fitting our diverse and growing constituency. Our shared vision sees Ageing in Australia as a time of possibility, opportunity and influence. Our mission is to advance the rights, interests and futures of Australians as we age. We represent older Australians in all their diversity. COTA seeks to influence decision-makers and society to challenge ageism and develop policies that create an inclusive community where older people are valued.
