Tackling Malnutrition in Older people Living at Home in Scotland


About the Small Ideas, Big Impact Fund

Watch our short video on the Small Ideas, Big Impact fund and why you should apply.

We'd like to encourage people across Scotland to help us in our quest to reduce the number of older people who are at risk of becoming malnourished, or already are hungry and malnourished.

Applicants can apply for funds ranging from £50 to £5000 to test ideas which will prevent, detect and/or treat malnutrition.

This fund has been specifically designed so that individuals, community groups, social enterprises, charities and public-sector workers can test out their ideas around the theme of older people living well via food.

In 2018 we opened Round 1 where we received 88 applications across Scotland. Applications varied from support to set up lunch clubs, cookery classes for older people and their carers, and intergenerational projects.

In total we funded 23 projects covering 11 Scottish Health Boards: for more information on these projects click here.

Submissions for Round 2 of the Small Ideas, Big Impact fund will open on Monday 6th May 2019 and close on Friday 2nd August.
