Guideposts Trust have been awarded a three-year grant of £173,000 by the Community Fund for their North Warwickshire Befriending Scheme.

Also, Contact the Elderly have been awarded a three-year grant for over £350,000 under the Strategic Grants Programme.

The grant will enable the charity to pilot five different models of service delivery in different parts of the country. As a result they should be able to identify a replicable and sustainable model which will enable them to effectively meet the needs of isolated elderly people long into the future.

Cascaid Consulting work with both Contact the Elderly and Guideposts Trust in support of their fundraising activities. The company not only offers advice but also carries out implementation of fundraising projects and campaigns.
