Grants of up to £7,000 are available to charities in the U.K to support preventative and early community based intervention programmes that focus on helping older people stay in their own homes and maintain their independence.
The funding is being made available through the Charles Hayward Foundation Small Grants programme and is looking to support projects that:
address isolation and depression in older people through activities like informal day care or social and recreational programmes;
- provide support and assistance for older individuals living in their own homes;
- cater to the emotional and practical needs of older caregivers;
- meet the specific requirements of people with dementia.
There are no deadlines and applications can be submitted at any time.
