Positive Ageing Fellowship Grants

Positive Ageing Fellowship Grants (PAFG) provide one-off ageing specific capacity building grants of between $20,000 – $40,000 for projects that create or extend opportunities for older South Australians to be involved and active in their communities and contribute to an age friendly South Australia.

The Grants enable community organisations across the state to apply for funding for capacity building projects that support older South Australians, including those from diverse communities and backgrounds, to age well and be recognised for their valued contributions across their lifetime.

All projects funded by Office for Ageing Well:

  • Contribute to South Australians living a good life in their later years in communities that value older people and the opportunities of an ageing population;
  • Facilitate collaborative partnerships and contribute to building capacity for South Australia’s and state government priorities for ageing well.

The 2019-20 Positive Ageing Fellowship Grants will fund projects aligned to one or more of the following themes:

  • Homes and communities.
  • Meaningful connections.
  • Navigating change.
  • Respecting diversity.
  • Challenging ageism.

In addition, all Positive Ageing Fellowship Grant applicants should demonstrate that their project aligns with the Positive Ageing Fellowship Grants Theory of Change (PDF 33KB).

Applications for Positive Ageing Fellowship Grants are now closed. 
Assessment of applications is currently underway.  
Applicants will be advised of the outcome in late March / early April 2020
