We recommend that you read the updated guidance document before starting your application. It should provide all the information you need to apply to the Independent Age Grants Fund. It will also help you know what we are looking for in applications; how we will make our decisions; and what you can expect from Independent Age if you get a grant.
The key criteria and focus for the Fund haven’t changed but we have had to adjust some of our requirements in the light of huge response we have seen and the changing environment for older people.
Please read through to the end. We have no opportunity to discuss your work with you, so we have to rely on what you tell us in the form in making our decisions. We have provided guidance on each question on the application form to help you make your case as clearly and strongly as possible.
Please be aware you can only apply once. If you have been unsuccessful, you will not able to re-apply.
