- Funding length: Up to 5 years
- Funding size: There is no minimum or maximum limit to how much we will give, however we never give revenue funding exceeding 50% of the applicants turnover/income in any one year
What we fund:
Applicants are encouraged to showcase how their project addresses the unique requirements of older people, enhances their wellbeing, fosters social inclusion, or caters to their specific interests and concerns.
There is no specific age criteria for what is considered‘older people’, but the project / organisation must be explicitly targeted towards older people.
Detailed discussions regarding the project’s alignment with the older population’s needs and benefits will take place during the assessment process.
Funding is open for work with residents of care homes as well as those who live in their own homes.
We particularly welcome applications from organisations working with individuals or communities who may not otherwise access mainstream services.
Wherever possible, we seek to support projects and organisations that involve the communities the project or organisation serves in the shaping of its services.
