Funded 2015 by the Trust

Surrogate grandparents for disconnected families, creating better relationships

This grant will fund a 'grandparents visiting' project that connects senior residents with families with no local family connections or experiencing feelings of isolation.


EDSDA supports and encourages the community to become self-reliant, informed, healthy and resilient. Partnering with government, service agencies, organisations and the Central Highlands community, they sponsor and/or deliver a number of diverse community services such as the Emerald Neighbourhood Centre, the Day2Day Living program and provide information, referral and support for families.
