Funding from The Pargiter Trust29-Sep-2017
The Pargiter Trust are providing funding to support groups who help disadvantaged older people to be independent, healthy and socially included.
The Pargiter Trust will provide funding to non-profit organisations including charities and voluntary groups who are providing support to elderly people across Kent.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for charitable and voluntary organisations in Kent to provide activities which support disadvantaged older people who are over 65 years of age so they are independent, healthy and socially included.
The fund is especially interested in hearin from groups in areas of greatest need in Kent; and to include focus of underrepresented BAME and LGBT groups where possible.
The sentiment from Kent Community Foundation (KCF), who are hosting the funding, is that grants are intended to support existing services or facilities, new initiatives, capital costs (e.g. new equipment) or ongoing costs (e.g. running costs) of projects.
Because the scheme can be seen as a continuous rolling programme; there is no deadline and so applications can be accepted throughout 2017.
