PROJECTS that can tackle malnutrition in older people can receive grant funding and people in Stirling can hear about it first-hand next month.

The Small Ideas, Big Impact fund, developed by Eat Well Age Well, is offering grants between £50 and £5,000 to any groups and individuals who feel they could help test ways to detect, prevent or treat malnutrition.

As part of the scheme, a roadshow will hit the Sunlite Community Café at the Cowane Centre on Monday, August 6, between 11am and 1pm.

Gail Hutchison, innovations officer for Eat Well Age Well, 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 ideas, no matter how big or small will be considered.”
