Abstract

This is a report on the evaluation of the Connecting Communities Small Grants Fund, one of five pilot projects developed by Age UK Bristol (AUKB) for the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care System (BNSSG ICS) Ageing Well programme, which ran from April 2022 to March 2023.

A total of £60,000 was allocated to distribute in microgrants of up to £2,000 to 38 community groups and activities for older people across all six Locality Partnerships within the BNSSG ICS.

The aim of our evaluation was to assess the impact of the Small Grants Fund in empowering local older people to improve their health and wellbeing using a mixed methods approach.
