A celebration of our state’s seniors will be in full swing from Sunday 11 to Saturday 17 November for WA Seniors Week 2018.

From whale watching to a Mad Hatters Tea Party - Seniors Week events that encourage active ageing and inclusivity will be held throughout metropolitan and regional WA. View the Seniors Week grants list for events supported by the Department of Communities 2018 Seniors Week Grants Program.
