The Older People’s Fund offers funding for locally based community projects that are planned and run by and for older people. Originally called the Turkington Fund, it was created with financial support from NICVA via resources from Turkington and Seapark and is managed by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland. The fund has grown significantly in recent years with additional investment from the Community Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies.

Grants available: ￡500 – ￡3,000
The fund will close for applications on Friday 27th May 2016 at 4pm.
