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.”
