COTA NSW produces two main types of submissions.

Pre-budget submissions

COTA NSW produces a pre-budget submission each year. We make recommendations to the NSW government in relation to issues affecting older people, with particular focus on the NSW Ageing Strategy. We also produce a policy platform in election years.

Other submissions

COTA NSW responds to many requests for comment and input to government inquiries, discussion papers, and draft strategies, standards and legislation that relate to and affect older people.  We consult our members and supporters to provide a balanced and constructive representation of their views.
