Small Grants for Age-friendly Communities

Centre for Ageing Better currently have Micro-grants available for community groups and local voluntary sector organisations within communities who are part of the UK Network of Age-friendly Communities, to take part in their new annual Action Day to tackle ageism, as part of a pilot programme.

"We want everyone to be able to take part in the Action Day, but we know it can often be easier for some people than others to find the time and money to be able to do so. We also know that people across the country are experiencing ageism in different ways. Each of us has different ideas on how we raise awareness of and tackle ageism that work for us and our communities. We want to support this creativity across the day through offering micro-grants."

What can the micro-grant cover?

Groups can choose to mark the day as they would like, using the theme “see and be seen” as inspiration, which is all above improving the way ageing is represented in society and challenging negative portrayals and associations.

It could be supporting art exhibitions, poetry competitions, fashion shows, film viewings, events which bring generations together, sharing stories of ageing or creating opportunities to discuss ageism at a coffee morning or pub quiz. The options are endless! 

How much is available?

Grants of up to £500 are available, with an additional up to £150 to cover anything needed to make the event or activity more accessible. The lower limit for applications is £75.

What is the deadline?

The deadline for applications is 10th January 2024 but they may have to close early if they receive a high level of demand so they encourage you to submit as early as possible.
