The theme for round 3 is: Communication. Looking for projects to support people aged 50+ to improve communication.
The Small Funds Programme has been established to help third-sector groups develop ways of reducing loneliness and isolation and strengthen communities benefiting older people defined as over 50 years of age. Leeds Community Foundation is delighted to deliver this scheme in partnership with Time to Shine. There will be two rounds per year for six years with different themes each round. The theme for this round is Communication. The funds will be available to support a range of community-based projects that older people in Leeds who are most susceptible to the adverse effects loneliness and isolation can get involved with.
The programme is therefore seeking projects that will improve communication between organisations and older people, support older people in effectively communicating their needs and wants, address skills gaps in utilising digital communication tools, and allow older people to re-visit traditional communication methods.
