Comic Relief Launch New Active Ageing Grants Programme
The new Active Ageing: Creating Change in Communities initiative is providing £1.5 million of funding in order to engage older people aged 65 and over from ‘harder to reach’ groups to get involved in opportunities which use their skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to their communities. Applications will need to meet at least one of the following outcomes:
- Older people improve their mental health and wellbeing;
- Older people increase the quality and quantity of their social connections;
- Older people develop an enhanced sense of purpose and empowerment.
Proposals are welcome for between £40,000 and £80,000 for up to three years for work in the UK.
The deadline for applications is 29th August 2017 (midday).
