Age UK has launched a new winter small grant programme open to Age UK Friends and affiliated forums.

Winter can be a very difficult time for many older people and that the activities you deliver to provide companionship and give people opportunities to participate can make a really important difference to their lives. This year it will be even more challenging to provide those opportunities, so they are inviting Age UK Friends and affiliated forums to apply for funding for innovative ways of supporting older people through what we know will be a difficult winter.

The funds available for this grants programme have diminished this year due to Covid-19, but your organisation can apply for a grant of up to £250 to fund costs or equipment that will enable you to undertake an activity, extend the range of what you do, and / or reach more older people.

Download the application form and guidelines for more information. The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 9 November 2020.
