Two Limestone Coast not-for-profit groups will share in the latest round of Grants SA funding.
The South East Junction Mental Health Activity and Resource Centre and Mount Gambier’s University of the Third Age will receive grants issued to support vulnerable South Australians and communities.
The South East Junction has been allocated $3787 to provide a greater variety of activities for the Millicent community while creating a space for the community to enjoy and benefit from.
The University of the Third Age has been allocated $3850 to provide a new course at a local gym for older people to engage and participate in physical activities that are tailored to the needs of the group, with benefits including fitness, balance and mobility.
Minister for Human Services Michelle Lensink said the grants were intended to help South Australians reconnect with each other and their communities.
“We are really thrilled to be funding these important community-based projects right across the state to help South Australians connect, engage and participate in their local areas,” she said.
“Each of these important local projects will deliver real and positive impacts to communities across the state.
“Not only will these grants provide fantastic new projects and initiatives for communities, many of them are providing opportunities for construction and building work, supporting jobs in our regions.”
