Grant Fund for Organisations Working with Older People

Independent Age will be opening Round 3 of the IA Grants Fund on Monday 17th August, with the deadline for applications 9am on 11th September. The application guidance document has been updated to reflect learning from the previous rounds.

The key criteria and focus for the Fund haven’t changed but some of our requirements have been adjusted in the light of huge response we have seen and the changing environment for older people. The FAQs page has also been updated

In addition, there is now an online application form. Our Aim is simple, through our collaborative efforts we want to reach more people, particularly those who are:

  • living in complex and challenging situations
  • in danger of being out of sight and out of mind

Organisations can apply to receive up to £15,000 each.  Please be aware you can only apply once. If you have been unsuccessful, you will not able to re-apply. Go to our website to find out more.

We won’t be able to respond to queries by phone so please get in contact with us by emailing:
