Tackling Malnutrition in Older people Living at Home in Scotland

Small Ideas, Big Impact Round 1 Projects

On Monday 1st October 2018, Round 1 of the Small Ideas, Big Impact fund opened for submissions.

We were overwhelmed with the response: in total we received 88 applications, requesting a sum of £327,935 across 11 Scottish Health Boards. Applications varied from the setting up of new lunch clubs and cookery classes to healthy eating roadshows and intergenerational projects.

This demonstrates not only the passion and drive to help support older people to eat well and live well, but also indicates the impact of funding cuts and existing systems not supporting adequate nutrition.

After a tough decision process we funded 23 projects: for full details of these projects click here.
