Minister for Ageing supports the Senior Australian of the Year Award
Minister for Ageing, Justine Elliot, is delighted to support the Senior Australian of the Year Award again this year.
“So many older Australians throughout the nation make a generous contribution well into the later years of their life,” Minister Elliot said.
“Their tireless energy and enthusiasm is an inspiration.
“The Senior Australian of the Year Award is a wonderful opportunity to recognise their continued efforts and achievements and ensure that they know they are appreciated.”
The Senior Australian of the Year Award is proudly sponsored by the Australian Government through the Department of Health and Ageing and recognises the contribution of citizens over the age of 60.
