Impact Funding Partners - Wellbeing for Longer in Glasgow Fund


The Wellbeing for Longer in Glasgow Fund aims to support adults aged 16 and over most at risk of social isolation and loneliness in line with the Scottish Government’s ‘A Connected Scotland’ Strategy. It can support the continuation or expansion of existing activity as well as new or pilot activity.

Applicants are required to demonstrate that they work with people most at risk because of at least one of the following:

  • Personal characteristics: this would include all protected characteristics such as disability and age or other barriers such as language and poverty.
  • Life transitions: this would include young people leaving home, bereavement, becoming a parent and retirement.
  • Health: this would include conditions which may limit your ability to leave the house or interact with others.

Who can apply

This is an open and competitive fund for third sector organisations (voluntary organisation or community group) whose Board of Trustees or Management Committee are predominantly volunteers.

Organisations do not need to be registered charities, although their constitution/set of rules should make clear that funds will only be spent on purposes established in the constitution, and not distributed amongst members.

Organisations should have a Glasgow base and have an annual income of below £250,000 in their last financial year, unless they are applying to the fund to support a citywide project in which case there is no income threshold.

When to apply

Last open from August - October 2022.

How to apply

Full guidance and the application form are avaiable via the Impact Funding Partners website.
