Congratulations to successful Remove Hazards grant recipients

Congratulations to the City of Albany Public Library and West Arthur Community Resource Centre as the successful Stay On Your Feet® Remove Hazards grant recipients.

The Remove Hazards key messages and calls to action focus on the importance of creating safe environments as well as looking after your eyesight and feet to prevent falls and promote healthy ageing among older adults. So what grant projects can we expect to see happening throughout the Remove Hazards campaign in March to May?

The Albany Public Library will be developing Remove Hazards kits for their older adult Home Library Service patrons, containing information, resources, and items that can be used to make their homes safer. The Remove Hazards kits will be accompanied by a week of educational sessions delivered by a local Occupational Therapist, Optometrist, and Podiatrist.

West Arthur Community Resource Centre will deliver a short series of interactive ‘Remove Hazards Road Trip’ workshops for older adult community members in the West Arthur, Williams, and Wagin areas to develop their knowledge and practical skills around Remove Hazards falls prevention strategies. The workshops will incorporate the main ‘roads’ of environment, eyes, and feet, with participants provided with a Remove Hazards Road Trip map to reach their destination.

Didn’t get a chance to apply this round? The next round of Stay On Your Feet® Move Your Body grants open soon. Keep an eye our on our Stay On Your Feet® grants page for more information.
