Winter Celebration Grant
The Winter Celebration grant programme for 2019 is now open for applications.
We're inviting local older people’s groups to bid for grants of up to £200 to help organise winter celebrations.
We know that loneliness and isolation can have a devastating impact on older people, particularly at winter time, so we’re encouraging local older people’s groups to organise social events or celebrations anytime between December 2019 and the end of February 2020.
The Winter Celebration grants programme is open to applicants from across Wales. It's hoped that through this initiative, older people will have an opportunity to meet new friends and build upon existing friendships. In previous years our grants have helped fund a variety of events including Christmas lunches, Chinese New Year celebrations and theatre trips.
The grants are only available to established older people’s groups such as lunch clubs, forums or even bowls clubs. Our limited fund is usually oversubscribed so applicants need to make sure they match our eligibility criteria.
Deadline for applications
The deadline for applications is Friday 8 November 2019.
The Winter Celebration Grants programme is kindly supported by Western Power Distribution and Legal & General.
