Stay Connected On The Mid North Coast And 'Sing Your Age'

Older people living on the Mid North Coast and interested in singing and choir groups are set to benefit from a new grants program ‘Sing Your Age’. 

The NSW Government program will provide $150,000 in total to encourage more seniors to discover the joy of singing.

Sing Your Age is an important initiative that will see more people in our local community enjoying the power of song,”

“This grants program will help tackle challenges sometimes faced by older people, including social isolation, loneliness, and negative perceptions of ageing.”

There are three grant categories including;

  • Category 1 - $100 to $1,000 for expanding existing singing groups to include older people
  • Category 2 - $1001 to $7,000 for creating a new singing group or choir in one location.
  • Category 3 - $7,000 to $15,000 for creating or expanding singing groups in multiple locations.
