Dorset Community Foundation – Neighbourhood Fund
The Neighbourhood Fund is now accepting applications for projects that support Dorset’s elderly population.
Constituted community groups, registered charities and social enterprises can apply for grants of between £500 – £5,000. Approved projects must start within 2 months of the award and be completed within 12 months. The Foundation will give priority to projects addressing the following issues:
- Social isolation and loneliness
- Declining mental and physical health (including dementia)
- Poor access to services due to problems with transport
- Older people who are carers.
The Foundation are particularly interested in supporting projects that involve collaborative working between local groups in order to deliver cost effective projects and to reach out to more people in need.
The deadline for applications is midday on 14th December 2016.
