PROJECT FUNDING FOR KIAMA SENIORS

North Kiama Neighbourhood Centre is the successful recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Federal Government to enable them to introduce a project to assist Kiama seniors.

In announcing the grant, Federal MP, Joanna Gash said that the funding followed the introduction of a grants program by the Minister for Ageing that was designed to promote an maintain the health, wellbeing, skills and positive images of older Australians.

The North Kiama Neighbourhood Centre's project is called Kiama Seniors Creating Community and is designed to encourage the participation of older Kiama residents in community activities.

"There are many senior residents who want to lead an active life but are constrained by the lack of resources. "This project is just one way of raising awareness of ageing issues that will benefit not only older residents but the community in which they live.

"Ageing is one of the bigger issues confronting Australians. As the population gradually ages, it is important that we have in place the facilities to protect the quality of life.

"These grants are available to non profit organisations and are worth between $500 and $5000. "Any such organisation is encouraged to seek a grant, the details of which can be had from my office", Mrs Gash said.
