The Office of Senior Territorians

The Northern Territory Office of Senior Territorians engages with the community and government agencies to ensure a coordinated approach to the implementation of governmentís policy priorities for Territory Seniors.
Some of our roles and responsibilities include:

  • Provision of Secretariat Services to the Ministerís Advisory Council for Senior Territorians (MAC-ST).  
  • Territory Seniors Month which is held in August to promote greater awareness of the positive aspects of ageing, to increase participation by older people in social and recreational activities and to acknowledge the valuable contribution that Seniors make to our community. The Office of Senior Territorians provides grants to assist community organisations to hold an event or activity for older people during Seniors Month.
  • Seniors Card provides access to savings on a range of goods and services for Senior Territorians.
  • Information for Seniors relating to government and community services that are available in the Northern Territory for Seniors.

This website is designed to provide relevant information and links for Territory Seniors and to also provide useful information for those that provide services to Seniors in the Territory.

The Office of Senior Territorians welcomes any suggestions for additions and/or feedback.
