Merton Council Winter Grants opportunity for lunch and social clubs for older people

Last year, Community and Housing invited organisations to bid for funding to support attendance at lunch and social clubs in Merton over the winter period.  Due to the successful outcome of last year’s Winter Grants Programme, Merton Council has decided once again to offer small grants to lunch and social clubs for older people in Merton this winter 2019.


This grant is in recognition that during the winter months, people, particularly older people, find it harder to get out and socialise. Lunch and Social Clubs play an important role in providing opportunities for social interaction, access to information and advice, and a good meal.


Organisations interested in applying for funding need to complete the attached form and email it to 

By 5pm, Friday 22nd November 2019.


If you have any questions, please contact Heather Begg on 020 8545 4515.
