The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust – Spring / Summer Programmes

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust has announced three funding programmes which will open in Spring and Summer 2022.   All the three programmes have a focus on providing targeted support for veterans, Armed Forces families and serving personnel.

This can be for new and additional support; or could build on work that organisations have already done. 

The programmes to be launched will include:

  • The Force for Change programme will reopen in April 2022; with a focus on funding local projects that respond to hidden and known needs within Armed Forces Communities, which can include standalone projects that would enable new approaches to be piloted. Grants of up to £10,000 are available, and this programme has previously awarded over £4M to over 300 projects throughout the UK.
  • A new medium grants programme, Reaching and Supporting Armed Forces communities will offer funding of up to three years, with grants of up to £100,000, though some projects may be able to access grants of up to £150,000. This programme will fund projects that help address complex needs especially where evidence has highlighted gaps in support and provision.
  • A transformational grants programme will launch later in 2022, which will make significant grants to a small number of projects that can deliver sustainable new approaches to addressing unmet needs

The Covenant Fund grants programmes will all open by summer 2022, and full guidance will be available when they launch.
