More Ways for Seniors to Stay Conneted
Community-led programs have been funded by the NSW Liberals and Nationals to empower seniors to be active and connected in our local community.
Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC said that our local community will benefit from a share of more than $600,000 through the third round of the Reducing Social Isolation for Seniors program.
“Following this round of the program, the NSW Liberals and Nationals have now supported 71 different programs with some $2 million to support seniors and keep them connected with their local communities right across the state,” Mr Henskens said.
“Seniors are an integral part of our society, and we want to make sure they don’t run the risk of falling into social isolation.”
“Each of the programs we are funding are about making sure everyone can participate no matter their background, language or abilities.”
Hornsby Shire Council will build on the momentum of Hello Hornsby during 2022, using this NSW Government funding to continue the program in 2023, supporting our local seniors and breaking down barriers of social isolation.
Funding of up to $50,000 were on offer in the third round of the Reducing Social Isolation for Seniors Grants program. Projects must run through 2022-2023.
