Seniors Social Isolation Grants Now Open

The Queensland Government is expanding a vital scheme that helps older Queenslanders stay connected to each other and their communities.

Your organisation could join the 42 services already operating across the state and help more people  stay connected to their peers and their community.

Current services provide a range of activities including yoga, tai chi, line dancing, craft and board games, bare foot bowls, cinema visits and lunch groups.
