Ap­pli­ca­tions open for Se­niors Week grants

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

ONE of WA’s peak se­nior’s bod­ies is of­fer­ing grants of up to $1000 to off­set the cost of host­ing an event or ac­tiv­ity dur­ing Se­niors Week which is from Novem­ber 6-13.

Coun­cil on Age­ing WA, sup­ported by Lot­tery­west and the State Govern­ment, is invit­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to ap­ply for the fund­ing.

El­i­gi­ble events should meet at least one of the aims of the Se­niors Week which are to recog­nise and thank se­niors for their con­tri­bu­tion to the com­mu­nity, pro­mote in­ter­gen­er­a­tional ac­tiv­i­ties link se­niors to the com­mu­nity, fa­cil­i­tate artis­tic, cul­tural and cel­e­bra­tory ex­pres­sion and en­gage se­niors ac­tiv­i­ties and ini­tia­tives that en­cour­age ac­tive age­ing.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are strongly en­cour­aged for events aimed at se­niors who would not nor­mally par­tic­i­pate in Se­niors Week ac­tiv­i­ties or events, or who are at risk of be­com­ing so­cially iso­lated, or are mem­bers of in­dige­nous or cul­tur­ally and lin­guis­ti­cally di­verse com­mu­ni­ties.

Ap­pli­ca­tions will be ac­cepted un­til Fri­day, Au­gust 19.
