The social calendar in Ku-ring-gai just got busier with the NSW Seniors Festival Grants Program providing opportunities for our local seniors to get active and stay connected.

Member for Ku-ring-gai, Alister Henskens SC MP, has announced four local organisations were awarded grants worth over $5,500.

“These grants are an opportunity for the seniors in our local area to get out into the community and be social, happy and active”, Mr Henskens said.

The full list of successful projects under the Program are:

  • DCaf Connections Social Café, Wahroonga;
  • Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Aged/Disabled Transport Service Inc.;
  • Easy Care Gardening, Pymble; and
  • Ku-ring-gai Council.

Almost 80 projects were selected across the State, adding to a diverse schedule of activities.

“Staying connected is pivotal to wellbeing, so I am pleased the NSW Government has backed four local initiatives to help reach seniors no matter their language, location or mobility level”.

Ku-ring-gai’s successful recipients will hold local programmes including, educational gardening workshops and outdoor luncheons during the NSW Seniors Festival, which runs from 13-24 April, 2021.
