Fund description:

The Covid-19 Impact Programme has been set up to ensure that people from Armed Forces communities can keep accessing important services, where resources for these services have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is for military charities and CICs that need to keep their services open to help people from Armed Forces communities affected by coronavirus but have a reduced income as a direct result of the virus outbreak.

There is £6 million available as grants of up to £60,000. In exceptional circumstances, grants of up to £125,000 or more may be awarded.

Charities across the UK must be working in one of nine key areas:

  • support to the elderly (including care homes)
  • mental and physical health
  • welfare
  • domestic violence
  • housing
  • criminal justice system
  • service families (including childcare)
  • bereavement
  • employment
