Age-friendly and inclusive volunteering
The Centre for Ageing Better has launched its Age-friendly and inclusive volunteering fund to support initiatives that put the principles of age-friendly and inclusive volunteering set out in their recent review into practice.
They hope to attract applications that will:
- Sustain lifelong contributions and help people remain involved throughout major life changes such as bereavement, caring or developing a health condition;
- Help people connect to and take part in voluntary activities and opportunities that suit their life circumstances, including informal and self-organised contributions; and/or
- Provide practical support to include older people who currently face barriers to volunteering(for example due to health, language, cultural or social factors).
You can find all the information at: www.ageing-better.org.uk
The application deadline is Monday 10 December at 12 noon.
