Victorians are being encouraged to recognise the contributions made to our community by seniors and organisations by nominating people for the Victorian Senior of the Year.
Nominations for the Victorian Senior of the Year Awards open today. It 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 Health and Active Living Award, the Veteran Community Award and the Council on the Ageing Victoria Senior Achiever Awards.
The Age-Friendly Victoria Award recognises an organisation or a business that creates age-friendly communities, promotes active ageing, or improves quality of life for older Victorians.
