We’re delighted to announce that we have provided funding to 10 of our Small Ideas, Big Impact Fund projects to help them further support older people during COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on major issues affecting older people such as loneliness, isolation, and food security and what has been abundantly clear during this crisis is we all need food.
To help support older people’s health and well-being during this time we opened the Small Ideas Big Impact COVID-19 Emergency Fund for individuals and organisations who have previously applied to our Small Ideas Big Impact Fund. Projects could apply for funds up to £1000 to support immediate community responses to Covid-19 with a focus on providing food access and addressing social risk factors that can contribute to malnutrition.
In total we funded 10 projects across Scotland with a total of £7490 of grants issued to support older people during this crisis. For more information on the projects please click here
