iLA is the National Grants Manager for the administration of the Village Hubs Grants Fund, an initiative of the Australian Government’s Seniors Connected Program.
The Seniors Connected Program was established to implement the Government’s 2019 election policy: ‘More Support for Older Australians’. The intent of the program is to alleviate loneliness and social isolation experienced by older Australians.
iLA is excited to introduce 12 communities across Australia that have been awarded funding to establish a new Village Hub. The hubs are located in both regional and metro areas to a diverse range of older Australians including Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD), and LGBTIQA+.
Each Hub is community-led and provides innovative opportunities for older people to improve their mental and physical health through the benefits of increased community connections.
