Community Connects grants

The Team from Office for Seniors

Hi Neighbours!

Have you heard about our Community Connects grants?

The grants help fund projects that promote the inclusion and contribution of older people in community life, and support communities to prepare for an ageing population.

The fund makes one-off grants of up to $15,000. The grants are open to any New Zealand council, community organisation, or registered non-profit organisation. Applications for our current funding round close on 9 October.

Our last funding round was a huge success and helped fund a range of different projects across the country, that had focuses like reducing loneliness and social isolation of older people, developing an age-friendly community plan and supporting people with dementia.

With the right planning and support, we can create environments where older people are valued, connected and able to participate in their community.

Elliott Stables eateries served notice to pay rent or lose lease

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Half of the struggling eateries at central Auckland's Elliott Stables dining village have been served notices to pay rent and operating expenses in arrears of tens of thousands of dollars each or possibly lose their leases.

Five out of 11 owners received notices between September 4 and September 8, with some being delivered to their homes and accountants, as well as their eateries.

With personal guarantees on their leases, the businesses are worried landlord The Icon Group will effectively take their homes to recoup its losses.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, eateries at Elliott Stables said they have been “crippled” by the pandemic.
