Barchester’s Charitable Foundation is a registered charity that helps older people and other adults with disabilities. The Foundation gives grants to help reduce isolation and loneliness, promote group activities and generally improve people’s independence, mobility and quality of life. They aim to give grants that will help people lead more fulfilled lives and reach their full potential.
This year the Foundation’s focus is about connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community. Applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged will receive our highest priority in 2017.
Individuals, small community groups and small local charities can apply for grants of between £100 and £5,000 to help adults aged over 18 with mental and physical disabilities, and older people aged over 65.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
