2022 NSW Seniors Festival

2022 NSW Seniors Festival

Last week it was announced that grants are now available for local organisations to fund activities that support the delivery of the 2022 NSW Seniors Festival, which will be held from 25th of March to the 3rd of April 2022.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the $200,000 NSW Seniors Festival Grants Program supports initiatives that encourage people aged 60 or over to stay healthy, engaged and active.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate or build on the diverse skills and interests of seniors in our community in areas like art, sport, health or technology,” Mrs Tuckerman said, adding, “The 2021 NSW Seniors Festival included e-safety sessions, drumming circles, movie nights and gardening workshops, and I’d like to see local groups come up with more creative and fun activities for the 2022 festival.”

Local councils, community groups and not-for-profit organisations are among those who can apply for grants of up to $10,000 with a focus on COVID-safe activities and programs.

As we know, COVID-19 has meant an increase in social isolation for people of all ages, and seniors are no exception. It’s therefore very important to get on board with programs that unite people.

Applications for grants are open from the 2nd of August to the 30th August 2021. Apply here: www.seniorsfestival.nsw.gov.au/events/nsw-seniors-festival-grants
