Grants to Reduce Social Isolation Amongst Older People (Somerset)

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to Extra Care Housing Scheme providers in Somerset to support residents most at risk of deconditioning to improve their mobility, functional fitness and confidence to go out again following on from Covid-19.

The funding can be used to purchase items of equipment, bring in fitness or activity instructors, train the workforce, provide promotional material for marketing and improve outdoor areas so that physical activity is made more attractive.

The funding is made available by the Somerset Physical Activity and Sports Partnership through the Extra Care Housing Fund which closes to applications on the 1st December 2022.
