Seniors Clubs promote their programs through two ACT Government sponsored events: the annual Seniors Week Expo and the Canberra Retirement and Lifestyle Expo; and through 'Seniors Information Online' (www.seniors.act.gov.au), the information portal administered by the Community Services Directorate.
In the second appropriation of the 2008-09 ACT Budget, $200,000 was allocated for a feasibility study and design work for a facility for older residents of the Tuggeranong area. This was followed by an allocation in the 2009-2010 ACT Budget of a further $1.5 million over two years for the construction of premises.
The ACT Government is working with the Canberra Seniors Centre and Woden Seniors about possible new sites for these Clubs.
All commitments under the Community Support and Infrastructure Grants Program and Seniors Grants and Sponsorship Program have been committed and acquitted.
No commitments have been withdrawn.
