Funding for older people’s groups


The Positive Ageing Council has a limited pot of funding available to help organisations working with older people in the borough. Grants of up to £400 are available.

The deadline for submitting your application is 12 noon, Monday 8 February 2016.

What can you apply for funding for?

The Positive Ageing Council small resource grant is to help smaller clubs and organisations develop further. This year’s focus will be on helping to resource organisations with items they require or would find useful to benefit older members.

Here are some examples you could apply for funding for:

  1. Replacement of club equipment, such as an urn, cups and plates, essential fixtures and fittings, board games or other leisure equipment, craft materials
  2. Help with club promotional materials, such as flyers or branded items
  3. Help to fund tutors for sessions to be held at the club, such as someone to facilitate arts or crafts sessions.

Importan​t information about applying

This fund is for resources only and the Positive Ageing Council will not consider applications for trips, events, specific projects or for any core funding, such as paying staff or workers of the organisation.

We expect to be over-subscribed, so unfortunately not all applications will be successful. To apply, please complete the application form below and return by email to or by post to:
