United Way Glenelg will re-open the Lewis Court Fund in February 2021.

“This will allow our community to look for projects of the greatest need post-COVID, said Mrs Carr.

“Characteristics of rural areas such as lower population density and more geographically dispersed populations, make it more difficult for older people to socially connect. Older people have been and continue to be the most isolated, particularly in a rural community due to distance.”

“If we can remove this isolation through technology and a commitment to making our living environments more age-friendly.”

Grants will open Monday 1 February 2021 and close Saturday 28 February 2021. Applications can be made through For further information please call Nicole Carr, Executive Officer on 0410 513 305.
