Turn your ideas into reality!

People are being encouraged to put forward their ideas for making your community more ‘age friendly’ and ask for funding of up to £2,000 to get started.  It’s not just open to community groups to apply, you could apply as an individual, a group of neighbours or a local business with a good idea.

We are looking for ideas that:

  • increase social networks and opportunities for people to meet
  • reach more isolated people now or in the future
  • involve people aged 50+ in planning and delivery
  • have other benefits for the local community (e.g. across generations)
  • consider sustainability or create some kind of legacy that will benefit the community

Help is available to put your proposal together if you need it so chat to us about your idea and we can help you fill in the application form. 

For more information or to request an application form, please contact Nicola Shore on 0161 622 9257 or email
