Alliance of Bristol funders supports transformation of services for older people

11 April 2019

The Bristol Older People’s Funding Alliance is releasing £150,000 to help organisations improve their services for older people in Bristol.

For 2019, the Alliance has increased the available funds and aims to help organisations become sustainable, improve existing services or develop innovations that will have a positive effect on the quality of life for older people.

Chair of the Alliance and Dean of Bristol, the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle said “Last years’ fund was a tremendous success and we were able to support eight organisations to transform their services and improve their support for older people.”

“With cuts to traditional sources of funding for organisations that support older people, organisations need to find new ways of providing services and new methods of income. The Bristol Older People’s Funding Alliance aims to help with these changes and to support the continuity of services in Bristol.” 

The alliance is chaired by Dr Hoyle and is made up of the Anchor Society, Bristol Ageing Better, The Dolphin Society, The Grateful Society, John James Bristol Foundation, Quartet Community Foundation, The Society of Merchant Venturers and the St Monica Trust.

Last year, the Transformation Fund gave over £80,000 to support services in Bristol, 
most projects funded by more than one Alliance member with all members keen to proactively support the organisations.

Richard Pendlebury, CEO of Anchor Society said “There is a huge amount of expertise across the trusts, both in terms of running successful ventures and providing services for older people, that we can share.”

All organisations will be asked to complete an Expression of Interest form and submit it before the deadline of midday on 29th April 2019. The successful organisations that meet the fund’s criteria will then be shortlisted and invited to complete a full application for funding.
