The Older People’s Fund

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.

If you’re thinking about a project that does one or more of the following we might be able to help.
 Reduce isolation and vulnerability of older people
 Focus on the positive contribution of older people within the community
 Enable active participation of older people in the community in decision-making and addressing of local issues
 Help get older people engaged in taking community action where it hasn’t happened before
 Reasonable costs for refreshments will only be considered if essential to the project

Grants available: £500 – £3,000

The fund will close for applications on Friday 27th May 2016 at 4pm.
