COTA NSW 2018 Annual Report

Released: 29-Nov-2018

Event Date: to

The last twelve months has been busy with significant change at COTA NSW. 

We said goodbye to some long serving staff, welcomed new team members and students, moved from our long term office in Pitt Street to a new location in Market Street, and have worked hard at establishing a new way of engaging and communicating with older people around NSW. This means building on work we have done previously while thinking about new ways to work in the future. 

We are living through a time of enormous demographic change. Our population is ageing in an unprecedented way, and that means we need to make changes to the way we organise and support our communities, and deliver a range of programs and services. 

There are currently more than 2.3 million people over the age of 50 in NSW – almost one third of the population. These people are diverse – they come from all cultures and backgrounds, they live in all of our communities, from the city to the most remote parts of NSW, and they are aged from 50 to over 100 years old. 

We can’t treat this change as simple – it will permanently alter the face of our community. COTA NSW continues to advocate for changes to Government policy, programs and services to ensure they meet the needs of older people right around NSW.
