Grants for projects supporting Armed Forces families
A new £7.5 million funding programme has been launched to support Armed forces families.
The focus of the programme is on supporting the families rather than serving personnel or veterans. The funding will be available for projects that focus on one of the following: young people from armed forces families; families and carers of veterans and serving families.
This funding is being made available through the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust’s Removing Barriers to Family Life programme.
There are two funding strands:
- Medium Strand grants of between £30,000-£100,000 to support existing or new projects that meet a clear need for Armed Forces Families.
- Large Strand grants of between £100,001- £300,000 with some exceptional projects potentially receiving up to £500,000.
Projects will need to be able to show that they will have a transformative effect, and that the changes they achieve will be sustainable. The large strand grants programme is now closed to applications; the closing date for medium strand grants is the 12th September 2019.
