Active Living Programme grants of up to £2,000 for groups supporting people in later life to stay physically and mentally active are now available.
Applications are encouraged from community groups which are providing and promoting opportunities for older people in Somerset to be:
- more physically active
- less isolated and lonely
- more independent
- better informed of health and wellbeing information and advice
In addition, innovative project proposals which work towards these aims are welcomed. We are particularly keen to support Somerset based grassroots voluntary groups, local charities and social enterprises.
The programme is made available through Somerset County Council Public Health, and administered by Somerset Community Foundation.
More information can be found here. The Deadline for applications is Monday 21 October 2019.
