We’re keeping our old folk healthy
Community groups working with older people in Paisley can apply for grants to help tackle malnutrition.
Eat Well Age Well is a national project run by Food Train and funded by the Big Lottery.
It is holding a roadshow in the Tannahill Centre on Wednesday, September 19, from 11am till 1pm.
The project’s Small Ideas, Big Impact fund is giving away grants ranging from £50 to £5,000 and is open to individuals who feel they could help test ways to detect, prevent or treat malnutrition in older people living at home.
Innovations officer Gail Hutchison said: “The Small Ideas Big Grants fund is a great opportunity for people to really make a difference to older people in their community. Whether you’re a carer who would like training to spot the signs of malnutrition, or you run a café and want to host an event to bring older people together through food, everyone has the opportunity to apply for our grants and all ideas, will be considered.”
