The Australian Government is inviting applications to deliver services under the Village Hubs National Grants Manager Activity from February 2021 to 30 June 2024. The purpose of this grant is to engage a suitable organisation or consortia to manage the selection and administration of the grants to other organisations that will operate Village Hubs. A number of Village Hubs already exist in Australia and overseas, demonstrating how this model can bring older Australians together through a range of social, physical, learning, arts and cultural activities. Village Hubs aim to address loneliness, build community connection and offer a network of informal community support. Applications close at 11.00 pm AEDT on 4 November 2020.
