Introducing two new programmes supporting the Armed Forces community…
|The Armed Forces Covenant Fund: Force for Change programme|
We’re excited to introduce a new, local grants programme awarding one-year grants of up to £20,000 for projects that seek to promote social inclusion and support Forces communities to become less isolated.
This year, we have an additional focus on tackling the impact of Covid-19, helping Forces communities move to the ‘new normal’ and supporting volunteers to carry out local projects.
Full programme details on our website.
A couple of avenues for funding through the Armed Forces Covenant Trust that may be of use for regional events
|The Tackling Loneliness programme This new, large grant programme will award two-year fixed grants of £70,000 to projects that seek to tackle loneliness and isolation within Armed Forces communities.|
We’d particularly like projects to work with groups within the Forces community who are traditionally harder to reach and tend not to engage in services and provision available to them.
A list of these groups, and further information about the priorities of this new programme are available on our website.
|Funding dates for your diary…|
The Trust currently has three funding programmes supporting the Armed Forces community.
