Boost For Seniors Lifelong Learning

Local seniors will be able to broaden their horizons even further, with the support of the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has today announced $16,000 for the University of the Third Age – Dubbo branch to purchase a mobile interactive smartboard for their classrooms at the Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC).

“Our seniors have given so much to our community throughout their lives, and now in retirement many are still active either learning or teaching others through organisations like U3A,” Mr Saunders said.

“This funding will really expand the scope of topics and lessons that can be delivered, and make U3A’s lessons even more accessible with clearer visuals and better sound quality.”

The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 18,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Applications for the 2023 Program open in May 2023.
