Concertina makes grants to charitable bodies which provide musical entertainment and related activities for the elderly. This not only brightens up their lives, but also provides a therapeutic benefit to their health and well-being.
Concertina is keen to support smaller organisations which might otherwise find it difficult to gain funding. Since its inception in 2004, it has made grants to a wide range of charitable organisations nationwide in England and Wales. These include funds to many care homes for the elderly to provide musical entertainment for their residents.
Charities are invited to make an application to the Trustees via the Administrator. They need to provide details of their charity’s objects, its financial position, the sector of the elderly community which it benefits, amount sought and proposed cultural activities or related facilities it intends to provide.
Application Form: Available to download from the website below. Post your application to the address below. Email applications will not be accepted.
Deadline: The trustees review applications after the deadline dates of April 30th and October 31st each year. Please submit your application in good time so the administrator can review it to ensure there are no omissions, and that it is suitable before submission to the Trustees.
