Funding Opportunity for Social Enterprises

Do you have an idea that could help older people live positive, independent lives?

Leeds Community Foundation, in partnership with UnLtd and with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, are pleased to announce a new fund to benefit residents of Leeds. We are seeking social entrepreneurs with sustainable ideas to help older people to live positive, independent lives in local communities. 

The UK is undergoing a demographic challenge with longer life expectancy and an ageing population. We need innovations that use preventative approaches and tackle causes, not just symptoms, to help people to be better prepared for the challenges of later life.

There will be awards of up to £5000 for individual social entrepreneurs. There will also be lots of practical support provided by UnLtd.

Time to Shine support social entrepreneurs who are willing to try something new and help older people live better. We see a clear benefit in people and communities using the assets they have to enable older people to be more fulfilled, active members of their community.
