This Review summarises our activities during 2017 and 2018.
COTA Victoria is the leading not-for-profit organisation representing the interests and rights of people aged 50+ in Victoria. For nearly 70 years we have led government, corporate and community thinking in Victoria about the positive aspects of ageing.
Today our focus is on promoting opportunities for and protecting the rights of people 50+.
We see an ageing population as a time of opportunities for personal growth, contribution and self-expression. We believe there are obvious National, State, community, family and individual benefits from this approach.
COTA Victoria is a not-for -profit member based organisation run by, for and with Victorians aged over 50. We fund our activities and services through the support of government, members, philanthropic trusts, businesses and the public.
We have an experienced Board; highly qualified, permanent staff in a central Melbourne office location; and a broad State membership. We also have over 130 community volunteers throughout Victoria with skills in training, group facilitation, policy development and advocacy.
We work with local government, senior citizen centres, community houses and a broad range of community and service organisations.
