This funding programme is specifically targeting older people who don’t usually participate in volunteering or social activities because they are from a disadvantaged community, or face other barriers to participating.
Grants of between £40,000 and £80,000 for up to three years are available for work in the local community.
Applications will need to meet at least one of the following outcomes:
- Older people improve their mental health and wellbeing
- Older people increase the quality and quantity of their social connections
- Older people develop an enhanced sense of purpose and empowerment
