The Devonport City Council is seeking to facilitate partnerships within the community in order to build a week-long calendar of events for seniors that is inclusive of all walks of life.

The theme for Seniors Week 2019 is “Connections”.

Council is encouraging service providers and community groups to get involved by hosting an event for Seniors week which will encourage seniors to get out and about and enjoy socialising with friends and like-minded people.

You could have a picnic, a morning tea, a session on how to operate a smart phone or a history tour.

To be eligible for inclusion in the calendar, Expressions of Interest must be submitted by 16 August 2019.

For further information contact Council on 03 6424 0511 or email [email protected]
