Western Australia Honouring Seniors
Tuesday, 12th June 2012 at 9:29 am

The Western Australian Government has launched its 2012 Seniors Awards, calling for the nominations of exceptional older people in the community.

Seniors and Volunteering Minister Robyn McSweeny said WA’s older people bring a tremendous amount of value to our society, particularly through volunteer work and many of them remain unsung heroes.

“I urge all Western Australians to nominate someone they know for these awards, which are now in their 27th year,” she said.

Nominations are open in the following categories:

  • Community Award for voluntary work and serving the community
  • Intergenerational Award for working with children and young people under 25
  • beyondblue Inspiration Award for Wellbeing for seniors involved in promoting mental health and wellbeing
  • Westscheme/COTA WA Champion for Seniors Award for an individual of any age who works in a paid or voluntary capacity to improve the quality of life for seniors or retirees
  • The Bendigo Bank Active Ageing Leadership Award for recognising organisations for their innovative planning or services that improve the quality of life of seniors

Nominations close on Friday 10 August, 2012. Click here for online nomination forms. 

Award winners will be announced at a ceremony on Sunday 11 November, marking the start of Seniors Week 2012.
