NSW Reducing Social Isolation for Seniors 2021 Grant Program


The NSW Government is awarding $600,000 in grants ranging from $10,000 to $60,000 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.

Grants are open to all incorporated not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities based in NSW.

Applications close: 31 March 2021.
