Age Friendly Assistance Fund

As of the 1st of July the contract for the delivery of the Age-Friendly Melville assistance fund will no longer be held by Chorus.

We are currently in the process of reviewing the program (this was put on hold due to competing demands in responding to COVID-19 within the community). It is anticipated the fund will be up and running by September 2020. Please feel free to call/email us then.
