A limited number of grants from Comic Relief are available for community based organisations in the UK which have 'creative, fresh' approaches to get older people, especially those from disadvantaged communities, involved in social action.Grants of between £40,000 and £80,000 are available for up to three years of work in the UK.

Comic Relief has launched this new £1.5 million fund “to engage older people aged 65 and over from ‘harder to reach’ groups to get involved in opportunities which use their skills, knowledge and experience to contribute to their communities”.

The funding is for projects which put older people at the centre of the work, designing and developing activities or opportunities which meet their needs, interests and priorities.

Comic Relief is looking for 'creative, fresh approaches' and not for standard activities.
