Shaping more positive futures for older people
Thirty two Local Authority areas across England have yesterday been shortlisted for a share in a £70 million funding package under the Big Lottery Fund’s Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better programme tackling social isolation for vulnerable older people. The area partnerships will be led by local voluntary organisations.
The areas have been selected out of 100 identified Local Authorities applying for funding of between £2 million and £6 million for activities that will engage older people in key decision making and shaping priorities for local action.
Launched in March and delivered in association with the Daily Mail, the initiative will make funding available in around 15 to 20 local areas, over a period of up to six years, to pilot area-wide, voluntary service led local authority partnership projects to improve the lives of older people. Awards will be made in Spring 2014.
