Reaching Out: Connecting Older People grant holders

The Reaching Out: Connecting Older People Programme
The Reaching Out: Connecting Older People Programme is still open for applications until 2012. The programme funds projects that enable older people at risk to lead full, connected lives as valued members of their community.
The programme supports projects that focus on older people aged 60 and over; last from 3-5 years; target older people at greatest risk of exclusion and/or isolation; and involve older people in designing and managing the project.
Big Lottery Fund has also put in place a development and support programme, delivered by NICVA, to support and build the capacity of grant holders to ensure their projects and outcomes are effective.
For further information on the Reaching Out: Connecting Older People fund please visit the Big Lottery Fund website.
