Last chance to apply for Seniors Week subsidies

17 March 2016 –

Just a reminder for local Stafford and Northside community groups – time is running out to apply for subsidies of up to $1,000 to run activities during Seniors Week later this year.

I know the enormous contribution older residents make to our local community organisations. Seniors Week is an opportunity to acknowledge this contribution and celebrate older people in our community.

The subsidy can be used to help host a whole range of events. The theme for this year’s Seniors Week is It’s on for young and old so events that bring younger and older people together are particularly encouraged.

This program is being funded by the Queensland Government and managed by the Council on the Ageing Queensland.

Applications close on 31 March.
