There is funding available for older people’s groups. Organisations working with older people can apply for funding from Lewisham’s Positive Ageing Council to help deliver small projects and activities for older people.
Grants of up to £400 are available for smaller organisations in the Borough to deliver small, one-off projects or activities which:

  • increase wellbeing through developing opportunities for older people
  • raise awareness of active citizenship and volunteering opportunities
  • help people get connected in an increasingly online world
  • are completed by 31 December 2016.

You can’t apply if you already receive funding from Lewisham main grant funding and applications requesting core funding will not be considered.
The PAC expect to be over subscribed, so make haste- the closing date for applications is midnight on Monday 8 February 2016, 12 noon.
For more information and to download an application form please go to the Positive Ageing Council web site

If you are a group that does not qualify as being main grant funded, we would appreciate it if you could pass this information on to small older peoples groups in your network

Kind Regards
