Age Scotland Community Grants Programme 
The Age Scotland Community Grants Programme Tackling Loneliness and Isolation 2016/17 is now open for applications.    
This programme aims to assist our Category 1 member groups and organisations to provide services and activities which tackle loneliness and isolation amongst older people and improve later life.  
We also have a small grants programme available to assist Men’s Sheds to get started and to develop their activities.
The Age Scotland Community Grants Programme is only open to Category 1 Age Scotland member groups and organisations. Additionally, applicants must: 
Be a constituted voluntary organisation or community group 
Have a bank account with at least 2 signatories 
Have a committee/management structure and appropriate insurance cover for your ongoing activities.

The Age Scotland Tackling Loneliness and Isolation Small Grants Programme is now closed.

More than 150 Age Scotland member groups were awarded small grant funding during 2016/17. 

We will report on the activities and services our Age Scotland member groups have organised and the difference their work has made to older people on our website and in Advantage magazine through the year.

We have no provision to reopen the Age Scotland’s Tackling Loneliness and Isolation grants programme at present. 

However, our small development grants programme for Men’s Sheds is still open and receiving applications. For information on accessing grant funding for Men’s Sheds please contact Tim Green or Ian McVicar, Community Development Officers, Men’s Sheds.

If we are in a position to offer further  grants programmes in the future we will write to all eligible Age Scotland member groups and publicise the programmes online.
