Funding to Support Older People Most Vulnerable to Impact of Coronavirus Crisis

| Return|

Applications are now being accepted for a new Fund that aims to support charities that are making a real and immediate difference to vulnerable older people during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and beyond.

Registered charities that have at least one paid member of staff (part-time is fine) and an annual income of £1 million or less can apply for grants of between £5,000 and £15,000.

The funding is for work in one of the following two priority areas:

  • Supporting older people living in particularly complex and challenging situations:

    • Providing targeted, practical services for older people who are managing additional difficulties in their lives.

  • Supporting older people in danger of being out of sight and out of mind:

    • Making connections with older people who are very isolated and most at risk of missing out on the help available from government or charities that serve a very wide client group.

A total of £2 million will be awarded in grants over four funding rounds, with £500,000 available during each round.

The first deadline for applications is 4 June 2020 (9am).
