The Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund
The Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund has been established to support the sustainability of third sector Armed Forces Community organisations whose operations and income have been negatively affected by COVID-19. The fund will offer grants towards core operating and running costs until the end of March 2022.
The Fund’s priority is to help ensure that valued services can be supported in the short term; giving Armed Forces charities time to re-establish and regrow their fundraising activities.
Applications which support smaller organisations who may need to cease functioning if they do not receive support, but which have a cohort of beneficiaries who would otherwise be “stranded” and for whom the services must be transferred to other providers or managed to cessation, will be looked upon favourably.
Who can apply?
Third sector organisations whose primary charitable purpose is to support the Armed Forces Community, as well as organisations for whom the Armed Forces Community comprise a significant portion of their beneficiaries. More information on eligibility criteria can be found here.
The closing date for applications will be 12 noon on Friday 16 July. All applications are to be completed using this online form (guidance notes are included in this link).
