Combatting Isolation Fund (Older People)

The Combatting Isolation Fund (Older People) was established following an anonymous donation to the Community Foundation. Its purpose is to provide funding totalling £137,500 to support projects for older people in 2017-2018.

The fund is open to community and voluntary sector agencies with an income over £50,000 per year with a substantial track record of supporting older people in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland. It will provide grants of over £5,000 but under £10,000 for one year projects that help older people participate in community life or address the problem of social isolation through the provision of leisure, learning and vocational opportunities.

The closing date is 12noon on 17 August 2017.
