Funding for Service Delivery Projects Benefiting the Armed Forces Community
Charitable organisations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that are running or planning charitable activities in support of the Armed Forces community can apply for a grant to support their work.
Grants of up to £50,000 are available to fund specialised projects or services delivering welfare support directly to serving and ex-service personnel and their families. The funding is provided through the Service Delivery funding stream of the Royal British Legion’s External Grants scheme.
Priority is given to projects or services supporting the following areas of need:
- Employment and training.
- Support for families.
- Homelessness and outreach.
- Supporting the elderly.
Applications are invited from UK-based, not-for-profit and charitable organisations that have been operating for at least two years.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate that projects:
- Will not duplicate, or risk duplicating, support already provided by the Royal British Legion.
- Are in demand within the Armed Forces community.
- Will achieve positive impact (outcomes) for the beneficiaries.
The next deadline for stage one applications is 26 October 2018.
