The criteria of the Fund reflects the mission of the Pargiter Trust to: ‘to support disadvantaged elderly people to be independent, healthy and socially included’.

Grants up to £2,000 are available to support the work of charities, voluntary and community groups providing services and support or advice to older people with an emphasis on reaching smaller grassroots organisations in Suffolk. At least 90% of the beneficiaries of a grant must be over the age of 65.

The fund supports projects addressing one or more of the following themes:

  • 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 transport, supporting good neighbour schemes, befriending schemes and improving access to information and IT for older people.
  • Overcoming problems – Helping older people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to; illness, injury, disability, bereavement or financial difficulty.

Grants may fund existing services or facilities and new initiatives and can contribute to either capital costs such as funding new equipment or support on-going running costs. This is a small-grant fund with awards typically up to a maximum of £2,000. However, larger grants may be available if the project is exceptional. If you are interested in a larger grant, please speak to a Grants Officer first on 01473 602602.
