Reducing Social Isolation

ClosedGrant Closed: 31st of March 2021 - 5:00 pm Value: $10,000 to $60,000 Run By: NSW Department of Communities and Justice Further Information: https://www.facs.nsw.gov.au/inclusion/seniors/overview/chapters/what-we-are-doing-under-the-strategy/reducing-social-isolation-grant-program

This program provides funding for organisations to deliver locally-driven projects, programs or activities that foster social inclusion for older people.

The grant program aims to support effective, self-sustaining projects that provide meaningful opportunities for older people to connect with each other and develop quality relationships.

For a project to be eligible, it must be aimed at older people aged 65 years and over, or 50 years and over for Aboriginal people, who are socially isolated or at risk of isolation. Projects should focus on bringing older people together in person through small group activities where possible.

The program encourages projects, programs and activities that seek to actively engage new people, particularly harder-to-reach socially isolated older people
