The National Lottery Community Fund is organising a series of funding advice events, for charities and voluntary groups supporting older people across the South-East Wales region.

We are here to support communities through our open funding programmes, especially as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic or face the increased challenges of the cost-of-living crisis.

We know older people are among the hardest hit so we have arranged a number of ways where you or groups you support can speak with a local Funding Officer.
