Arts and Older People Grants Programme
The Arts & Older People Programme was set up to increase opportunities for older people to engage with the arts. It achieved this by providing funding to arts-based projects that addressed related social issues such as poverty, isolation and loneliness, as well as promoting positive mental health.
Who can apply?
The programme is aimed at constituted community and voluntary groups who are working at a local level to support older people and can demonstrate strong partnership working with relevant age sector organisations and Local Authority initiatives e.g. Health Cities/ Healthy Communities.
This programme is also open to non-governmental organisations, Local Authorities and arts organisations who can clearly demonstrate partnership working with older people.
We are looking for partnership or consortia based proposals. Partnerships can be led by either age sector providers, arts organisations or Local Authorities, however the consortium must be made up of appropriate representatives and demonstrate a commitment to working together. Other specialists who work with older people may also be included as named partners in the consortium.
