COVID-19 has had a significant impact on seniors in NSW. We recognise the risk to seniors who are socially isolating and the need to provide opportunities for them to remain socially connected in their homes. The NSW Government are providing one-off grants from $10,000 to $100,000 are available for organisations to deliver programs that provide quality social connection opportunities for seniors during social isolation – both online or not-online (for those that don’t have access or capability). Organisations need to be able to commence their projects in mid to late May.
