Independent Age Grants Fund

Reaching older people most likely to be missing out – now and beyond the coronavirus pandemic.

Coronavirus has changed the lives of everyone in the UK, but this is particularly true for our older generation who remain amongst the most affected. Before coronavirus struck the nation, Independent Age was exploring how to strengthen collaboration with older people and local organisations with the aim of shaping a more active role in supporting communities. But right now, their focus is being directed towards the current crisis. They have released £2 million from Independent Age's funds to help smaller organisations across the UK working with older people hardest hit by the virus.

Their Grants Fund will comprise of four separate funding rounds. In each round they will make £500,000 available where organisations can apply to receive up to £15,000 each. This fund is open to registered charities.
