UK registered charities can apply for grants of up to £7,000 for projects that improve the quality of life of older people. The funding, which is made available through the Charles Hayward Foundation’s Small Grants programme, will support preventative and early intervention programmes that help older people to stay in their own homes and remain independent. Projects could include informal day care, or social, physical and recreational activities to reduce isolation and depression, practical assistance and support for those living at home, emotional and practical support for older caregivers, and programmes tailored to the needs of people with dementia. The funding is available to charities with an annual income of less than £350,000. Applications can be made at any time, and will be considered on a quarterly basis.
