ACT Seniors Week

Do you know someone who’s done a good job for seniors?
If you do, you might want to nominate them for the 2016 Seniors Week Positive Ageing Awards. The Awards will be part of the Seniors Week festivities and will conclude with a gala cocktail award presentation ceremony! This is a great way to recognise and celebrate the people, groups and organisations that contribute to the health and wellbeing of our older population – and encourage others to get on board. Anyone can be nominated for an award and the nomination process is free. So let’s get this party started and revel in the lives and experiences of our greatest assets – the wise, wonderful, inspiring and diverse champions committed to improving the lives of older Australians. The award categories are as follows:

  • Community Sector, Senior Volunteer Award
  • Intergenerational Award (two categories)
  • Age-Friendly Community Award
  • Seniors’ Advocate Award
  • Transport Services Award (a great way to recognise your favourite taxi, bus or community services driver or someone else who provides transport services)

To nominate someone or for more information, see thepdf flyer/form.


  • ACT Seniors Cards
  • The Seniors Information Line
  • Referrals to community organisations
  • Services for older people and their carers
  • Social Groups & Support Groups
