Overview 

In accordance with Section 356 of the Local Government Act 1993 Council gave public notice of its intention to give financial assistance to eligible seniors under the new Safety for Seniors Program.

In April and November each year eligible seniors (over 65 years who are on a pension or who hold a Health Care Card) may apply to receive one off assistance to the value of $100.  Assistance will be provided based on priority of need for the purchase and installation of small low cost security measures such as key lock boxes, chain locks and/or door viewers, large and/or florescent house numbers.  A maximum of $2,000 will be provided under the program each year.

What Next?

As no objections were received, the financial assistance will be provided.
