Bring your community together & help those over 50 to overcome isolation

About us


Ageing Better in Birmingham is working to reduce isolation in the city through a grass-roots approach designed to empower and connect individuals, helping to create sustainable change in communities.

The programme started in April 2015 and is delivered by Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC). It is funded by a £6million, six-year grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s Fulfilling Lives initiative and is part of the Ageing Better national strategic programme.

People are encouraged to apply for up to £2,000 through the Ageing Better Fund to start activities, initiatives, events or services for the collective benefit of older people across the city.
