The fund has re-opened with new digital development opportunities.
Grants are available that help integrate Armed Forces and civilian communities across the UK, and/or deliver valuable local services to the armed forces community. Community Integration projects should create strong local links between the Armed Forces community (i.e. current and former members of their armed forces and their families) and civilian communities; and be able to clearly demonstrate how they will have impact in overcoming barriers to better integration; and improving perceptions, attitudes and understanding.
Delivery of Local Services projects should be local projects which offer financial advice, housing, mental and physical health, employability or social support for serving armed forces personnel, veterans, and their families. If you are successful with your Local Grant application your organisation will be able to benefit from the Covenant Fund’s Digital Development Programme. A new resource will be made available online to all organisations working with the military community in early summer 2018 and will continue to grow into a significant facility for the sector. The next deadline for applications is 13 May 2018.
