Who is the funding for: Projects which prevent social isolation and loneliness
Home Instead Charities awards grants of up to £1,500 to small, local registered charities and up to £500 to grassroots organisations with projects that further the needs of our ageing adult population through well-being activities and programmes to prevent social isolation and loneliness.
Most of your group members must be over 55 years old or the project you are requesting funding for must benefit people aged over 55. Types of fundable projects include:
- Regular weekly or monthly events and activities such as weekly cinema club, weekly knit and natter or Thursday lunch club
- One off activities such as a day trip or a Christmas lunch
- Activities such as yoga or a guest speaker for your group such as a local historian
Applications from groups, associations and charities that do not service the over 50s directly but the project they require funding for does, i.e. a local school wishes to hold a special afternoon tea for its local care home residents will also be considered.
