Standing with older South Australians.
COTA SA stands with older South Australians to create new images and expectations for our older years — boldly reframing the way we age.
Ageing in Australia is a time of possibility, opportunity and influence.
We advance the rights, interests and futures of South Australians as we age.
Respect — We respect and value the contribution and lived experience of South Australians as they age and support each person’s right to make choices and to participate in their community.
Diversity — We value the great diversity that characterises South Australians of all ages and are committed to genuine exchange and engagement with older people.
Equity — We are aware of and committed to reducing the impact of inequality, disadvantage and discrimination on South Australians as they age.
Collaboration — We work collaboratively with older people, with our COTA colleagues, with our partners, and with the South Australian community to achieve the vision and purpose of COTA SA.
Integrity — We operate ethically, openly, honestly and with accountability in all our interactions.
Independence — We understand the value and trust that older people and the community place on our independence as the voice reflecting and representing older South Australians.
