We help older people to be connected to their community


This year, I am raising money for The McCarthy Stone Foundation by taking part in the Jurassic Coast Ultra Challenge. This will involve walking 100km over 2 days - May 2022


The McCarthy Stone Foundation offers vital support to charities to help them build happy and vibrant communities across the country. They provide support in three key areas: long-term charity partnerships, community grants, and volunteering.

They champion the health and wellbeing of older people in the community by:

  • Providing grant funding to community charities supporting the needs of older people
  • Supporting projects that include intergenerational or community regeneration
  • Partnering with charities who actively engage older people in community activities
  • Actively facilitating opportunities for volunteering
  • Advocating and campaigning for older people

They support the educational challenges of young people through intergenerational programmes by:

  • Committing volunteering days every year to support children with additional learning needs
  • Building long-term partnerships with charities, local schools, and community groups
  • Providing grant funding for charities and community groups supporting children with additional learning needs
  • Promoting intergenerational learning opportunities

They create and enhance community spaces that bring people together and foster connection and opportunity by:

  • Ensuring community spaces are accessible and able to be enjoyed by all ages
  • Promoting opportunities for generations to enjoy work and recreation together
  • Bringing together communities through volunteering
  • Partnering with community charities to develop sustainable community spaces

About the charity

Our Foundation works with grassroots charities and organisations that help older people to feel valued, connected and engaged with their community.
