/, Older People/Funding for individuals with Solutions for an Ageing Society

Do you have an idea that could help older people live positive, independent lives?

Are you passionate about your community? Could you be a social entrepreneur?

Leeds Community Foundation, in partnership with UnLtd, is pleased to announce a new £50,000 fund set up to benefit residents of Leeds.

This new programme is supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to help deal with the challenges faced by an ageing population whilst harnessing the experience, expertise and creativity of people of all ages, including older people.

 Do It Awards are cash awards of between £500 and £5000 plus practical support. They are available for individuals who are looking to set up social enterprises which will provide solutions for the ageing Leeds population. They are to help you turn your ideas into a reality.
