Two Wells Bowling Club and Port Parham Sports and Social Club have both received grants to support senior members.
South Australian Health Minister, Jack Snelling, announced recipients of Positive Ageing Development grants and Grants for Seniors in October, with the bowls club securing $5000 towards the purchase of a new commercial dishwasher, and Port Parham Sports and Social Club receiving $3000 to support its local dance group.
“The Grants for Seniors and Positive Ageing Development Grants programs assist older South Australians to get involved in their community and enjoy a range of social activities,” Mr Snelling said.
“Positive Ageing Development Grants provide up to $25,000 for organisations to help empower seniors to retain their independence and improve attitudes towards ageing.
“The Grants for Seniors provide up to $5000 for organisations to buy equipment to support social, cultural or recreational activities which help older people remain engaged with their local community.”
