Grants of up to £5,000 are available to small local groups / charities to improve the quality of life for older people as well as adults with a physical or mental disability, where health and/or social care needs cannot be met by the statutory public sector or by the individual. There are no deadlines and applications can be submitted at any time. Their target groups are:
- Older people 65+
- Adults (18+) with a physical disability
- Adults (18+) with a mental disability
We favour applications that help improve people’s mobility, independence and quality of life. Our grants range from £100 up to £5,000. This year our focus is about connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community. Applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged will receive our highest priority in 2016.
