13 May 2023 - This landmark report on the experiences and views of Older Australians is the third of the COTA Federation’s State Of The Older Nation (SOTON) reports. After another year living with COVID-19, combined with natural disasters at home, conflict overseas and cost-of-living pressures, it is perhaps unsurprising that COTA’s 2023 report tells the story of a cohort who aren’t feeling as good about the future as they used to. .
