Armed Forces Covenant Fund - Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces Communities
Created: 04/05/2022, Updated: 05/05/2022
The Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces Communities will fund projects that will deliver significant changes or improvements for Armed Forces communities where there are hidden or compelling needs.
Funders are more likely to fund projects that focus on specific groups of people within Armed Forces communities, rather than more general approaches. They are also keen to see that the people who will benefit from the project have been able to shape how it will be delivered.
A very wide range of people from Armed Forces communities could benefit from this funding. Projects must fit into one of their four core funding themes:
Non-core healthcare services for veterans.
Removing barriers to family life.
Extra support, both in and after Service, for those that need help
Measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the Armed Forces community to participate as citizens.
Who can apply
Charities and CICs.
