New Large Grants Programme from Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust

Registered charities and Community Interest Companies can apply for funding to address hidden and compelling needs in Armed Forces Communities.

The Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces Communities programme offers grants of up to £100,000 over two or three years for large-scale projects which take a more targeted rather than generalist approach.

Funding could support specific groups within UK Armed Forces communities such as:

  • People who have been bereaved.
  • Those with unmet needs from physical injury.
  • People serving in the Armed Forces who were born overseas or with immediate family overseas.
  • Armed Forces families coming to the UK.
  • Veterans from LGBT+ communities.
  • Female veterans.
  • Veterans and families with needs that make them particularly vulnerable.

The Trust would also like to fund a small number of projects that would strategically address challenges of perceptions of Armed Forces communities within the wider civilian population.

Applications are accepted from charities and Community Interest Companies (CICs) in the UK which have been registered for a minimum of three years. Groups do not need to be Armed Forces-specific, but must be willing to work in partnership with Armed Forces organisations.

The next deadline is 8 August 2022.
