Fund description:

The Dunhill Medical Trust supports community-based organisations that are working to enhance the lives of those who need extra support in later life. The trust particularly likes to support projects which have the potential to “scale up”, share resources and experience with others and attract other sources of support.

There are three funding schemes for charitable community-based organisations that work directly with older people:

Project grants – £5,000 to £40,000 for innovative time-limited projects that focus on the development of care and support services for older people

Building and physical infrastructure grants – £5,000 to £100,000 for the provision of accommodation/developments in the built environment for older people to enhance and maintain their health, well-being and independence and/or specific pieces of equipment or furnishings

Capability development grants – £5,000 to £100,000 to support the development of knowledge, skills and capabilities in community-based organisations, including training, feasibility studies, consultations, business planning, board development and governance

The Trust also funds academic and clinical research in the UK into understanding the mechanisms of ageing and treating age-related diseases.
