Funding to Support Older People Most Vulnerable to Impact of Coronavirus Crisis

Funding to Support Older People Most Vulnerable to Impact of Coronavirus Crisis

Wednesday, 20 May, 2020

Applications are now being accepted for a new Fund that aims to support charities that are making a real and immediate difference to vulnerable older people during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and beyond.

Registered charities that have at least one paid member of staff (part-time is fine) and an annual income of £1 million or less can apply for grants of between £5,000 and £15,000.

The funding is for work in one of the following two priority areas:

  • Supporting older people living in particularly complex and challenging situations:
    • Providing targeted, practical services for older people who are managing additional difficulties in their lives.
  • Supporting older people in danger of being out of sight and out of mind:
    • Making connections with older people who are very isolated and most at risk of missing out on the help available from government or charities that serve a very wide client group.

A total of £2 million will be awarded in grants over four funding rounds, with £500,000 available during each round.

The first deadline for applications is 4 June 2020 (9am).
