Funding Alert - 3rd August


Comic Relief - Active ageing: creating change in communities 

Registered and un-registered community based organisations and partnerships across the UK can apply for grants of between £40,000 and £80,000 to support projects, initiatives and activities which primarily focus on benefitting older people, specifically those older people who do not usually participate in volunteering or social activities because they are from a disadvantaged community, or face barriers to participation. 

Comic Relief is also interested in supporting activities which will have a wider benefit for the community in which they are taking place.  

To be eligible for funding, projects should meet at least one of the following outcomes: 

  • Older people improve their mental health and wellbeing.

  • Older people increase the quality and quantity of their social connections.

  • Older people develop an enhanced sense of purpose and empowerment. 

Closing date: 29th August
