DIGITAL CONNECTION grants are to help older people get online and stay connected and can be used towards the cost of equipment such as tablets and smartphones as well as broadband costs. FINANCIAL SUPPORT grants are there to help with unexpected bills and large costs such as utility bills, funeral costs, moving fees etc. Our grants are funded from donations from our generous supporters and funds are limited. We have simple but clear criteria to help make the process as easy as possible. Grant value The average amount we award is £300 and we do not often award grants for more than £500.
