Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Disability Services and Community Development
Over 116,000 Tasmanian Senior Card holders now have access to benefits at over 550 local and interstate businesses with the release of the 2021-2022 Seniors Card Directory today.
The Directory is packed with hundreds of discounts and offers from businesses, encouraging older Tasmanians who are retired or semi-retired to continue to remain active, try new experiences and to engage with their local community.
It comes as part of the Tasmanian Liberal Government’s plan to make our State the best place to live, work and invest, supported by our Strong Liveable Communities: Tasmania’s Active Ageing Plan 2017-2022.
I take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank all the businesses registered with the program for their ongoing support of the Seniors Card Program and promotion of participation of older Tasmanians.
I also acknowledge the role of Council of The Ageing Tasmania in supporting active ageing through their Age Friendly Business project, which promotes age-friendly businesses in response to the needs of an ageing demographic.
The new 2021-2022 Seniors Card Directory is available at Service Tasmania shops, Libraries Tasmania, Tasmanian Visitors Information Centres and offices of Members of Parliament.
