Smaller registered charities across the UK that are working with some of the older people hardest hit by the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis can apply for grants.
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:
Charities that do not specialise in work with older people are welcome to apply but they must already be providing services for older people as part of their work.
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 09:00 on 4 June 2020.
