Supporting Ageing in Place – Ambition for Ageing Funding for Groups and Organisations

Ambition for Ageing is seeking community groups and organisations to deliver projects of up to £2,000 in specific neighbourhoods across Greater Manchester to help us create social connections and build age-friendly places for people aged 50 and over.

They are looking to invest in a range of projects to increase social connections for older people, especially those from marginalised and low-income, communities. Projects could support social connections by delivering activities, adapting spaces to make them more accessible or buying equipment, but you can be creative. You can apply for more than one project although we do want to support the widest range of people.

They are looking for projects to be delivered in the following pilot neighbourhoods:

The deadline for this first round of funding is midday, Monday 14th June 2021.
