The coronavirus pandemic has changed life for everyone in the UK, but older people are amongst the hardest hit. Despite the challenges they are facing, organisations working with older people have been keeping vital services running, providing advice, support, opportunities, and practical help.
Since May 2020, we have made 277 grants totalling just over £3.3 million across five rounds of funding, supporting many different communities of older people and a wide range of work. Our fund is now CLOSED for new applications – we are developing a new strategy for our grant making in 2022 and beyond, and will publish information on priorities etc. in due course.
Find out more on how we've helped charities rebuild services for people in later life and the difference our grants have made to a range of organisations across the country here.
