  • Second phase of Dementia Friendly Communities Fund

    Created: 13/02/2017

    The second phase of the Dementia Friendly Communities Fund has opened for applications.

    A total of £2 million is available to start up geographical communities and communities of interest that assist people affected by dementia. 

    There are three funding options available:

    Option 1 - £150,000 over three years with 10% minimum match-funding or in-kind contribution;

    Option 2 - £225,000 over three years with 33% minimum match funding or in-kind contribution;

    Option 3 - £35,000 over one year with 10% minimum in-kind contribution.

    The funding can be used for start-up, running and staff costs. Applications should include practical examples of how you will involve people affected by dementia (including carers) in the planning, delivery and evaluation of the community. Examples of the kinds of projects the fund will consider for support are provided in the online guidance documents.

    Applications must be submitted online by 30th March 2017.
