Happy Older People Small Grants
‘HOP Pot’ small grants enable a variety of diverse organisations to engage older people with arts and cultural projects across the Liverpool City Region.
Funded by National Museums Liverpool, ‘HOP Pots’ of up to £300 each are available to put towards new partnership projects developed by an arts or cultural organisation working alongside a community/older people-focused organisation to help make it easier for older people to access the arts.
Previous HOP-funded projects have achieved a variety of outcomes, including a reduction in social isolation by facilitating activities outside the home, improved mental stimulation, increased levels of physical activity and breaking down barriers for older people using new technology.
‘HOP Pot’ grants have funded some fantastic projects including intergenerational Chinese New Year Celebrations at a day centre, a local history-themed reading group, and African and Caribbean dance workshops for older adults.
Applications are now open!
