The Pargiter Fund

Sussex Community Foundation (SCF) has a new fund now open for applications.  It is aimed at older people in grass root groups and projects broadly working  around:

* Improving health and well-being: reducing isolation, providing hot meals and refreshments, and helping older people to stay active through sports, arts, recreation, social clubs and volunteering

* Improving access to facilities, advice and training – providing transports, supporting Good Neighbourhood and befriending schemes and improving access to information and IT for older people

* Overcoming problems – helping older people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to an illness, injury, disability, bereavement or financial difficulty.

Grants are up to £5000 and to apply groups should use the SCF application form:
