Independent Age said:
“Coronavirus has changed the lives of everyone in the UK, but this is particularly true for our older generation who remain amongst the most affected...which is why our trustees have released £2 million from Independent Age’s funds to help smaller organisations across the UK working with older people hardest hit by the virus.”
The fund will comprise four separate funding rounds. In each round they will make £500,000 available where organisations can apply to receive up to £15,000 each. Applicants must be registered UK charities, with at least one member of staff, already working with priority groups of older people.
