Seniors Month

Queensland Seniors Month is celebrated from 1 to 31 October each year.

Seniors Month is about celebrating the valuable contributions that seniors make to our city as well as encouraging community connections and participation.

During the month-long celebration there are opportunities for everyone to connect through free or low-cost activities offered across the city.

It’s the perfect time to enjoy what the Gold Coast has to offer, meet people and try something new.

Grants for Seniors Month events

The Community Grants Program supports community organisations to deliver events in October to celebrate Queensland Seniors Month.

Our funding model has changed. There is no longer a specific Seniors Month funding program. To apply for Seniors Month events funding, choose the Community activations category.

Funding decisions are made in line with the Community Grants Policy. Community groups are encouraged to review the policy before applying to ensure they meet eligibility and requirements.

Applications will be assessed and determined within 4 weeks of being received.
