Funds Supporting the Armed Forces Community


28th July 2020

Introducing two new programmes supporting the Armed Forces community...

Force for Change programme

We're excited to introduce a new, local grants programme awarding one-year grants of up to £20,000 for projects that seek to promote social inclusion and support Forces communities to become less isolated.

This year, we have an additional focus on tackling the impact of Covid-19, helping Forces communities move to the 'new normal' and supporting volunteers to carry out local projects.

The Tackling Loneliness programme

This new, large grant programme will award two-year fixed grants of £70,000 to projects that seek to tackle loneliness and isolation within Armed Forces communities.

We'd particularly like projects to work with groups within the Forces community who are traditionally harder to reach and tend not to engage in services and provision available to them.
