Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust

Source By: Community Matters Yorkshire

Under the Armed Forces Covenant Local Grants programme, the Trust makes grants of up to £20,000 for local projects that support community integration or local delivery of services.

Community Integration projects should create strong local links between the Armed Forces community, who are current and former members of their armed forces and their families) and civilian communities; and be able to clearly demonstrate how they will have impact in overcoming barriers to better integration; and improving perceptions, attitudes and understanding. For the project to be truly effective in achieving community integration there should be shared development, delivery and benefits for both communities.

Delivery of Local Services projects should be local projects which offer financial advice, housing, mental and physical health, employability or social support for serving armed forces personnel, veterans, and their families. Projects must be well connected, both to their beneficiaries and to other relevant organisations, and be able to demonstrate how the services they provide will be well-publicised, accessible and joined up.

Application Form: Further details, guidance and online application forms are available on the website below.

Deadlines:  Applications can be made at any time.  Decisions are made four times a year with nominal deadlines advised on the website.
