Walkin' 'Bout our Generation

An innovative project by Charles Sturt University (CSU) is set to benefit local seniors thanks to a $30,000 funding injection from the NSW Government.

The project to develop a walkability index targeted to older Australians in regional cities is one of 25 community projects across NSW funded under round three of the NSW Government’s Liveable Communities Grants Program, which focuses on reducing social isolation, keeping fit, and supporting seniors to live longer at home.

To find out more about the project, Sarah caught up with Acting head of School of Environmental Sciences at Charles Sturt University, Dr Rachel Whitsed on today's Country Viewpoint.

The Liveable Communities Grants program is an initiative of the NSW Government’s Ageing Strategy 2016-2020. For further information about successful projects visit the website.
