Aims/priorities: The Foundation aims to make a difference to the lives of older people and other adults with a physical, learning or mental disability; supporting practical solutions that lead to increased personal independence, self-sufficiency and dignity.

The aim of this fund is on connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community. Applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged will receive highest priority.

Who can apply? Although most funding is awarded to individuals, small community groups and small local charities based in England, Scotland or Wales can also apply.

Eligible organisations must provide a breakdown of their budget and their latest annual accounts.

Support is mainly available to individuals in England, Scotland and Wales who are:

  • Older people aged 65+.
  • Adults with a disability or mental health problem.

All applications for an individual must be supported by a third party sponsor, such as a health or personal care professional, social worker, charity or support group representative.

Grant amount: Grants range from £100 to £5,000. In 2021, the average grant was £725.

Application process: Guidance and an online application form are available from the Barchester Healthcare Foundation website

Deadline: Applications may be submitted at any time
