The Arts and Older People Programme 2013 - 2016 aims to strengthen the voice of older people and promote positive mental health and emotional well-being through the arts. 

Who can apply?

The programme is aimed at constituted community and voluntary groups who are working at a local level to support older people and can demonstrate strong partnership working with relevant age sector organisations and Local Authority initiatives e.g. Health Cities/ Healthy Communities.

This programme is also open to non-governmental organisations, Local Authorities and arts organisations who can clearly demonstrate partnership working with older people. 

We are looking for proposals that demonstrate good partnership working.
