Funding to Support Older People’s Voluntary and Community Activity – 10th December 2018 (England)

The Centre for Ageing Better has announced that grants of £40,000 – £60,000 are available for projects in England that develop and document models of good practice in supporting older people’s voluntary and community activity.

The Age-Friendly and Inclusive Volunteering Fund seeks to stimulate new approaches and identify good practice that other organisations can learn from and replicate.

The Age-Friendly and Inclusive Volunteering Fund can support revenue costs; for example:

  • Staff time
  • Costs of meetings and convening stakeholders and participants (e.g. venue, travel, catering)
  • Training
  • Other running costs (e.g. publicity, costs of facilitation or support, transport / logistics, stationery and consumable supplies, printing etc)

The Fund is open for applications from registered charities and Community Interest Companies (CICs).

There is a two-stage applications process and applicants have until the 10th December to complete the online application.  A workshop will be held for shortlisted applicants in the week of 7 January 2019. Shortlisted applicants will then have two weeks to revise their applications.
