Grants of up to £5,000 are available to UK charities that focus on the often complex issues that have arisen from the Covid-19 pandemic for people aged 60 and over. The funding is being made available through the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust. The Trust will also be prioritising charities that work in BAME communities, in light of Black Lives Matter and the growing awareness that these communities are being disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
The funding is available to UK registered charities that have an operating income and expenditure in excess of £1 million.
The closing date for applications is the 30th September 2020.
