Following on from the hugely successful Age-friendly lunches held towards the end of last year, Wellington Shire Council has followed up on a number of the suggestions that were put forward from the conversations and discussions with interested community groups and organisations.
Planned projects that will benefit from the $100,000 of funding given to Council from the Department of Health and Human Services include:
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Carolyn Crossley said:
“I was very encouraged by the conversations and discussions that were held around the tables at the lunches across the Shire and it is great to see some of these ideas and suggestions coming to fruition.”
The Age-friendly projects will be rolled out over the next 18 months to June 2018.
Ideas and suggestions for Age-friendly projects can still be submitted.
