Proposed new SA branch to keep seniors in touch

National Seniors will hold an information session tomorrow (14 July) to gauge community interest in forming a new branch in Adelaide’s east.

Chairman Chris Guille and Chief Advocate, Adelaide-based former ABC broadcaster Ian Henschke, will speak at the session.

The proposed new branch will join six existing branches in Adelaide.

Mr Henschke said having a new branch of the national organisation, which was formed 41 years ago to promote the interests of older Australians, was timely for several reasons.

Search for great older Australians

You could play a role in the search for an outstanding older person by submitting a nomination for Senior Australian of the Year 2018.

Nominations for the award, part of the 2018 Australian of the Year awards, will be open until midnight on Sunday, 6 August 2017.

The Awards program relies on the public to submit nominations for people deserving of recognition for the 2018 Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year, and Australia’s Local Hero.

Wanted: Victorian Senior of the Year nominations

Victorians are being encouraged to recognise the contributions made to the community by seniors by lodging nominations for the Senior of the Year award.

The award highlights the role of seniors who inspire others as mentors, educators, role models, leaders, or behind-the-scenes workers. 

Categories include the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year, the Promotion of Multiculturalism Award, the Healthy and Active Living Award, the Veteran Community Award, and the Council on the Ageing Victoria Senior Achiever Awards.
