NOW receives grant for new bus

Nurses On Wheels has been presented with $50,000 from Bayside Council via the State Government’s Stronger Community Fund Grants. Over $500,000 was awarded to 15 local community groups at a function on Thursday, 22 February.

“Bayside residents will enjoy the benefits from a number of important community projects funded under the Stronger Communities Fund to help kick start priority community projects.

“It has given local residents, community groups and Council an opportunity to deliver infrastructure and services by working together,” Mayor Bill Saravinovski said.

NOW’s Day Tripper Social Bus Outings is a vital and highly successful program which we currently run from Monday – Friday at capacity. NOW is now able to purchase a bus to provide additional services to frail and socially isolated clients on affordable and interesting day trips during the week.
