Funding to Support Mental Health and Wellbeing of UK Veterans
Armed Forces charities have until early March to submit their funding application for projects and activities that support the mental health and wellbeing of veterans throughout the UK.
Armed Forced charities and Community Interest Companies (CICs) as well as charities and CICs that have substantial experience in working with veterans have one last opportunity to apply for fixed one-year grants of £35,000 or two-year grants of £70,000 before the programme ends.
The funding is for activity-based projects (such as sports, arts, culture, heritage or getting outside) that will have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of veterans throughout the UK. Priority will be given to applications from small and local (rather than national) organisations, and those whose projects are led or partly led by veterans.
The final closing date for applications is 5pm on 6 March 2020.
Separately, groups that would like to have a say on a new local funding programme that will support UK veterans can complete a short questionnaire on the Armed Forces Covenant Trust website. The consultation closes at midnight on 6 March 2020.
