Community groups planning to celebrate Silver Sunday, an annual day of free activities for older people, are being offered grants of up to £200 from South Norfolk Council.
The council is working with the South Norfolk Older People's Forum to help fund events held between the October 1 and 7 which bring older people together.
Council cabinet member Yvonne Bendle said: 'This is a fantastic opportunity for community groups to showcase the many activities that happen throughout the year. It's also a chance for the older generation to try something new, get out and about and meet new people.'
Last year, events included a community lunch, craft activities, exercise taster sessions, quizzes and bingo.
The grants to cover the costs associated with staging and promoting events or activities, and are open to community groups or organisations and town and parish councils based in South Norfolk.
