Resource type: Grants

Granted to Volunteer Now


To provide training and information services on safeguarding vulnerable older adults to organisations working within the voluntary, community and independent sectors; and to support and develop five Time Banks, which will enable participants to make ‘deposits’ of time by giving practical help and support to older people and later to ‘withdraw’ their time when they need assistance from others.
