Lewis Court Fund

To Open February

United Way Glenelg will re-open the Lewis Court Fund in February.

Funds are available for projects to support older people in the Glenelg Shire.

Executive Officer Nicole Carr said older people have been and continue to be the most isolated, particularly in a rural community due to distance.

According to the DRAFT Glenelg Shire 2040 Our Future Together plan, between 2016 and 2026, the forecast for Glenelg Shire indicates a 28.1% increase in the population of retirement age and a 6.7% decrease in population of working age. This change means more lone person households are expected as populations continue to age, causing greater health concerns and a higher rate of mental health issues.

Projects up to $5000 can be accessed with a total fund pool of $20,000 available.

Grants will open Monday 1 February 2021 and close Saturday 28 February 2021. Applications can be made through https://www.unitedwayglenelg.com.au/our-work/grants/
