Community speakers

Our community speakers are ready to visit (or zoom!) your group

Our trained community speakers can provide talks for your group in-person (with a COVID-SAFE plan) or online.

We aim to help older people to make good decisions based on clear information. We know that people don’t like to be lectured, so we make sure that our talks are informal, interactive and entertaining for the people who attend. With one of our community speakers, you will hear about topics that relate to you and the rest of your group in everyday language.

Speakers are currently available to deliver presentations on the following topics:

  • How the aged care system works and how to use the MyAgedCare website
  • How to manage energy costs and make sure you are getting the best deal
  • Legal documents for planning ahead – Wills, Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship
  • Death literacy – how to talk to your family and friends about what you want to happen at the end of your life, what documents you should get prepared, and the basics of how to organise a funeral.

If you would like a speaker to come to your group (or provide a talk by Zoom), please get in touch and we’ll be only too happy to discuss your requirements.

We will be holding more training for Community Speakers in 2021 – please email community.speakers@cotansw.com.au if you are interested.
