  • undertaking research projects as they arise
  • representing COTA SA or older South Australians on external consumer and advisory committees
  • attending and helping with our policy forums and community engagement activities


COTA SA volunteers in the programs area perform a wide variety of functions including:
  • Peer Education
  • Strength for Life site checks
  • clubs support assistance
  • mailouts
  • data entry
  • media reviewing


Volunteering is an experience which benefits both the organisation and the volunteer.

COTA SA volunteers have the opportunity to:
  • meet new people and make new friends
  • learn new skills
  • remain active
  • share skills and knowledge
  • contribute to community
