Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith is calling on Penrith residents to celebrate a local senior by nominating them for the 2019 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards, which acknowledge the contributions older people in the community make on a daily basis.

“The unique insights, abilities and experience that seniors contribute to our community is what helps make our area thrive, and this is one of the ways we can show our appreciation,” Stuart Ayres said.

“I encourage everyone to nominate a senior that makes a difference, whether it be a grandparent who supports the family, a volunteer that lends a helping hand, or an older person who advocates for the rights of others.”

The award program will be held in Penrith as part of the numerous events happening across the state for the 2019 NSW Seniors Festival. The festival will take place in February 2019 to recognise the role older people play in the community.

Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies said the awards not only showcase the positive impact seniors make within their communities, but challenge ageist stereotypes about what older people can achieve. 

“The NSW Government is committed to supporting seniors so they can lead active, social and fulfilling lives,” Mrs Davies said.

“The 2019 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards recognise the skills and generosity of older people while encouraging other seniors to get involved and participate in their communities.”

The NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards were developed in 2014 to recognise and celebrate the achievements of seniors in their own communities across NSW.

Nominations for the Penrith 2019 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are now open until Sunday 3 February 2019. For further information about the program or to nominate a local senior, contact the office of Stuart Ayres on 02 4722 8660 or email penrith@parliament.nsw.gov.au.
