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.
