Kent Community Foundation - Elderly & Vulnerable Adults Themed Fund

Grants of up to £5,000 (£7,500 in exceptional circumstances) are available for local projects that address the challenges faced by elderly and other vulnerable adults, supporting people to stay well, healthy and independent and, most importantly, combat social isolation. For example, the Foundation would like to hear from pro-jects that:

  • Give elderly and vulnerable adults the op-portunity to have regular social interaction
  • Provide practical support to individuals liv-ing alone, such as one-to-one befriending schemes or transport services
  • Provide intergenerational activities
  • Enable older and other vulnerable people to use their skills and experience to make a contribution to their communities
  • Offer activities that encourage participation in sport and physical activity or opportuni-ties to participate in arts

Deadline: 27th May 2016
