Fund description:

This is a new funding programme to provide grants up to £20,000 for projects that help Armed Forces communities move to the ‘new normal’ while continuing to support local needs and reduce isolation.

There are two main themes:

  • empowering Armed Forces communities to become more engaged in their local area
  • providing opportunities for isolated members of the Armed Forces community to take part in activities that improve general wellbeing.

There is a particular focus on supporting projects that involve volunteers to support local Armed Forces communities as they address the needs that have arisen as a result of Covid-19.

Applications are accepted from registered charities and Community Interest Companies (CICs) that have substantial recent experience of supporting Armed Forces communities, Armed Forces units and bases, local authorities and schools.
