Every Generation Onkaparinga Awards
Our Every Generation Onkaparinga (EGO) ‘Celebrating Positive Ageing’ program celebrates the outstanding achievements and valuable contributions people of all ages, cultures and abilities make to ‘positive ageing’ in our communities.
During the month of October various events and activities are held for people to come together to celebrate and acknowledge these achievements and contributions.

Every Generation Onkaparinga is coordinated with advice from a volunteer group to ensure that it is meaningful, responsive and relevant.
