Investing in ageing

State Budget 2015-2016 COTA SA submission to the state government

A Centre of Excellence in Ageing is a key proposal in COTA SA's submission to the state government for the 2015-16 Budget.

The Premier has made health and ageing products and services the third priority in his ten-point economic development plan. COTA SA recommended a centre of excellence to help coordinate this priority, ensure sound public, private, community and research partnerships, and source sufficient funds.

In addition, COTA SA strongly urged the government to continue concessions on council rates from 1 July.

COTA SA has also sought support from the government to lead an ongoing strategy that promotes the workforce participation of older South Australians.
