Funding to Support Older People Hardest Hit by the Coronavirus (UK)

- Funding Opportunities
Grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 are available to registered charities across the UK working with older people hardest hit by the Coronavirus.
Independent Age’s £760,000 Grant Fund will give priority to organisations working with:
• Older people living in particularly complex and challenging situations, such as having no network of family, friends or community to call on; have a disability or long-term health condition; be caring for a dependent adult with learning disabilities or dementia or be facing other circumstances that make it harder to manage at this challenging time.
• 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.
Funding should be used to continue to keep these vital services running, providing advice, support, opportunities, and practical help.
Organisations must have an annual income of less than £1 million, with at least one paid member of staff, and should request enough funds to see them through the next six months of delivery.
The closing date for applications in this round is 9am on the 11th September 2020.
