COTA Tasmania is undertaking community consultation activities to support the development of the next Strategy for Older Tasmanians.

We want to H.E.A.R how you stay Healthy, Engaged and Resilient as you age. As part of this we have developed a short survey to reach as many Tasmanians as possible, alongside holding in person events and activities with community partners across the state.

Whether you are 40, 75 or 105 years of age (or any age in between!) what are your experiences of ageing in Tasmania?

What does ageing mean to you?

Can you access the services and supports you need?

What do you think Tasmanian’s need to age well?

How can I get involved?


 Email 1-2 pages about your views on the current Active Ageing plan and the things your organisation feel should be considered in developing the 2023-2029 plan

to  Please include full contact details of your organisation within this submission.


Completing our survey – whether you have 2 minutes or 10 minutes to spare we’d love to hear your views (please share survey links as widely as you can)

Phone or email COTA to have a hard copy of the survey posted to you – 62 313 265 /

Order some postcards to distribute in your workplace, local community group or local businesses – 

Text your thoughts of what healthy ageing means to you to 0477 011 112

Join in an online community discussion (APRIL and MAY dates TBC)

Download and print a COTA HEAR A3 Poster to pop at your local club, work office, shop, or community centre so others are aware of the consultation.

COTA staff are collaborating with community organisations, neighbourhood houses and Councils to arrange in person events and activities in COVID safe environments.

If you’d like to support us to reach Tasmanians in your area to hold a community conversation, please contact Brigid on or 62 313 265.
