Seniors Coordinating Committee (SCC)

The purpose of the SCC is to provide a council forum where issues and matters that impact on our senior citizens can be raised, discussed and where relevant, progressed or resolved.

The Committee plays a significant role in providing a united forum for Alice Springs based seniors and meets monthly on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Alice Springs 50 Plus Community Centre

The Alice Springs 50 Plus Community Centre is located at 11 Wills Terrace. A variety of activities and events are held at the Centre. More information can be found via:  

Seniors Month

Every August, Alice Springs Town Council celebrates the contribution that our senior citizens make to our community. Seniors are invited to attend the annual Mayoral Morning Tea, Library workshops & activities and perform at the lively and always entertaining "Still Got Talent" Seniors Talent Quest event.
