Peer-to-peer grants programme

About Dementia and Age Scotland's Peer-to-Peer grants programme is a funding opportunity for people living with dementia and unpaid carers in Scotland. The programme offers grants of between £500 to £10,000 to current or former unpaid carers, or individuals or groups of people living with dementia.

The purpose of these grants is to empower people with dementia and unpaid carers to create their own peer support activities and projects, and to enable ordinary activities that improve the quality of everyday life for people living with dementia and unpaid carers. These could be resources, community groups, research, pilot projects, or creative activities.

The Peer-to-Peer Grants Programme is an excellent opportunity for people living with dementia, unpaid carers or supporters to apply for funding to develop projects and similar tasks to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Our Peer-to-Peer Grants Programme is currently paused, which means we are temporarily unable to accept any new applications.

This is a temporary measure, and we are aiming to open to new applications again in Spring 2024. If you would like to be notified when we are open to applications again, or have any other queries about our peer-to-peer grants, please get in touch.
