Central Coast residents are encouraged to nominate seniors who are helping make their communities an inspiring place to live in the NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the Local Achievement Awards would celebrate the work of inspirational seniors.


“Seniors continue to go above and beyond as volunteers, carers and role models throughout our community,” Mr Crouch said.


“If you know a senior who helps make the Central Coast a better place to live, I strongly encourage you to nominate them.”


Local Achievement Awards will be presented as part of an exciting schedule of events across the State for this year’s NSW Seniors Festival.


The NSW Seniors Festival is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and enables older people to engage with each other, their community, ageing services and relevant businesses.


Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee said the Festival and Awards highlight the important role seniors play in the community.


“This annual Festival is about celebrating the positive impact of older people in our families and society,” Dr Lee said.


“These initiatives are a great opportunity for communities to celebrate their seniors and all the fantastic work they do for the community.”


Nominations can be made by emailing [email protected] or calling 02 4365 1906. Nominations close on Friday, 9 April.


Recipients of the Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival, which runs from 13 to 24 April.
