Comic Relief’s new Older people’s 'Active Ageing Fund' is now open to applications.

This is a £1.5 million fund to engage older people aged 65 and over from ‘harder to reach’ groups to get involved in opportunities which use their skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to their communities.

They are looking for proposals which put older people at the centre of the work, designing and developing activities or opportunities which meet their needs, interests and priorities.

The deadline for applications is midday 29th August 2017.

Full details are available on the Comic Relief website
