Community Grant Scheme projects can include any kind of creative activity. From yarn bombs to watercolours, and photography workshops to stand-up comedy, we are interested in supporting any project that offers an opportunity for older people to participate in the arts.

Projects could promote the health and wellbeing benefits of taking part in creative activity, or challenge stereotypes or preconceived ideas of aging.
