Staffordshire County Council in partnership with Health Education England will be hosting a free event on self care and digital innovation on Tuesday, 9 August 2016. It will start at 10am until 4pm (registration will begin at 9:30am).
The Foundation's funding programmes will be developed around clearly defined themes and reflect important factors that underpin health and wellbeing. These include mental health, ageing well, managing long-term conditions, behaviour change and healthy living.
Each round will focus on a different theme. The theme of the second funding programme is Caring for Carers, and is now open to not-for-profit organisations, including social enterprises and community interest companies, based and operating within the UK.
Digital Arts & Creative Ageing is a collaborative grant funding programme developed by Nominet Trust and The Baring Foundation. This programme is all about improving engagement with the creative arts by older people across the UK, with the associated benefits to general health and wellbeing which such participation brings.
Funding and support is available to enable entrepreneurial organisations to demonstrate the potential of digital technologies to bring scale to service provision focused on extending access to the creative arts for those aged 65 and over.
