Positive Ageing Grants

status: Funding round has closed
The Positive Ageing Grants program supports positive ageing initiatives that strengthen communities, contribute to an aged-friendly culture in NSW, and maximise opportunities for older people to remain active, socially connected and engaged.

Positive ageing is about maintaining autonomy and independence and remaining active in the social, economic and cultural facets of society. A healthy ageing population in NSW will contribute knowledge, experience and skills to the community and to the workforce. Opportunities and benefits of positive ageing include  independence, good health, friendship, self fulfilment and  inter-generational learning and sharing.
