Support of Older Australians
Our Conference Partners have played an important role in supporting older Australians to attend NEAC 2019. Through the provision of support and generosity of funds we have been able to offer heavily subsidised concessional tickets, as well as offer a limited number of community scholarships for those who would otherwise been unable to attend due to financial hardship.
In the coming weeks we will be featuring each of our Conference Partners. And on this note, we would like to take this opportunity to thank one of our Major Partners – Queensland Government for their support and welcome them on board in delivering NEAC 2019!
The Queensland Government’s vision is to build an age-friendly state in which all Queenslanders, regardless of their age, can stay active and connected, and contribute economically, socially and culturally. The Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors works with communities, sector partners and other government agencies to develop solutions based on the different needs and aspirations of communities.
The Queensland Government supports seniors to stay healthy, active and independent, including by preventing, responding to and raising awareness of elder abuse. The Queensland Government funds a range of services and activities including the Elder Abuse Prevention Unit which operates the state-wide Elder Abuse Helpline, 11 seniors legal and support services across the state and the annual elder abuse prevention and awareness campaign to combat elder abuse.
