The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is accepting applications to its Transitions in Later Life Fund.
The fund is for projects that enhance emotional and mental wellbeing by drawing on resilience-building approaches and showing how these can be applied in pre-retirement to equip people for other later life transitions.
Organisations registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland interested in advancing mental wellbeing for people in later life can apply and preference will be given to applications that build on current knowledge, expertise and build capacity in existing projects. There will be a financial support element of around £25,000 but the focus is on providing practical support through consultancy and collaboration.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is 5pm on 11th September 2015.
For further information please visit the Gulbenkian website or call CVS Falkirk and speak with Tariq or Claire for funding and capacity building support on 01324 692000, alternatively you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
