Funding for Creative Projects for Armed Forces Communities in Isolation

| Return|

Grants of up to £10,000 for six-month projects beginning no later than mid-October 2020 are available to support creative and engaging projects, that can be delivered under social restrictions, for people from Armed Forces communities who are isolated as a result of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

To be eligible, projects need to:

  • Provide a fun or engaging experience for people from the Armed Forces community or

  • Reduce isolation and encourage social interaction between people from Armed Forces communities and

  • Be delivered successfully while whatever social isolation measures the Government recommends are still in place.

The funding can pay for most things needed by the project, whether it’s people’s time, costs of delivering work online or buying/hiring equipment.

To be eligible, organisations must be a registered charity or Community Interest Company (CIC) and able to show that they have three or more unrelated Trustees/directors; a school; or an Armed Forces unit or base.

This is a single round programme funded through the Armed Forces Covenant Fund.

The applications deadline is noon on 30 June 2020.
