The Wellness Approach – Connecting CALD Communities


13th October 2010


Care Connect’s Blacktown office will receive $30,000 for the Wellness Approach

Connecting Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Communities program

through a successful application grant.


The successful application grant was made possible under the 2010/11 Positive Ageing

Grants program and NSW Government. The program will support positive ageing

initiatives that strengthen communities, contribute to an aged-friendly culture in NSW, and

maximise opportunities for older people to remain active, socially connected and engaged.


One hundred and seventy three grant applications were received and assessment panels

were convened to consider each application carefully. Care Connect’s Client Services,

General Manager, Marisa Galiazzo is proud to be working with a dedicated team who

continue to provide quality services to the people who need us the most – our clients and

the community.


Care Connect would like to commend the NSW Government and The Hon. Peter Primrose

MLC Minister for Ageing, Minister for Disability Services, Minister for Youth and Minister

for Volunteering for their decision in selecting Care Connect to work on this project and

look forward to commencing the work on The Wellness Approach.


For more information on this grant success, please telephone our Blacktown office on 

(02) 9830 8900.
