Council on the Ageing (COTA) Tasmania is the peak body for older Tasmanians. Our mission is to advance the rights, interests and futures of Australians as we age.

We advocate to Government, public services, community organisations and the public to promote positive change for older Tasmanians.

COTA is involved in the following:
• Research into elder abuse, home care support programs, active ageing and more
• Peer education sessions on issues such as financial literacy, health literacy and bushfire safety
• Co-ordination of Seniors Week

We are the Tasmanian branch of the national COTA federation.
