The Council on the Ageing NSW (COTA NSW) is the peak organisation for people over 50 in our state. We’re an independent, consumer-based non-government organisation. We work with politicians, policy makers, and service providers as well as media representatives to make sure your views are heard and your needs are met.

Committed to achieving a society where older people are respected, consulted, included, represented and heard

COTA NSW has long had a clear vision of the sort of society we want to bring into being. We’re committed to achieving a society where older people are respected, consulted, included, represented and heard. We are determined that their contributions are valued and that they have access to the opportunities other members of the community take for granted.

Working with our community, allied organisations, government partners and the media

While equity is a critical aspect of our agenda, we understand that achieving it is often a matter of ensuring that the specific needs of our constituents are met. Working with our community, allied organisations, government partners and the media, we ensure the interests and concerns of people over 50 are a priority for those who develop policies, deliver services and shape attitudes.

Authoritative advice on a wide range of important issues

We also provide authoritative advice on a wide range of important issues. This advice is available in Fact Sheets on this website, over the phone, by mail and in person at our Sydney office.
