The Andrews Government is supporting multicultural seniors’ groups across the state, including in Hawthorn, to recover from the lingering impacts of the pandemic.
The Coronavirus Support for Multicultural Seniors grants program will be providing the Chinese Precinct Business Association Victoria with $2,000. After a difficult year, these funds will enable the Association to support their members and build stronger connections with their communities.
Situated in the Hawthorn Electorate in Camberwell East, the Chinese Precinct Business Association Victoria has 24 members and provides support to seniors in Boroondara City Council from a predominantly Chinese background.
As a recipient of this grant, the Association will also receive Public Liability and Voluntary Workers insurance for the period of 1 January to 31 December 2021, in addition to the grant funds.
John looks forward to safely re-engaging with multicultural seniors’ groups in Hawthorn as soon as possible.
