Independent Age Grant Fund open

We’ve launched our Independent Age Grants Fund to help smaller organisations across the UK support older people most affected by COVID-19.  I would be very grateful if this information could be shared in your regular newsletters, or funding-specific newsletter if you have one.

Our Aim is simple, through our collaborative efforts we want to reach more people, particularly those who are:

·         living in complex and challenging situations

·         in danger of being out of sight and out of mind

We will be releasing £2 million across four sperate funding rounds. In each round we will be making £500,000 available where organisations can apply to receive up to £15,000 each.

Go to our website to find out more.  You will also be able to also find further information on our eligibility criteria, guidance on how to apply and links to download an application form

We won’t be able to respond to queries by phone so please get in contact with us by
