Funding to Address Complex Needs in Armed Forces Communities

Health & Social Welfare

03 May 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The programme aims to support UK veterans at risk of isolation and poor mental health.

Armed Forces Covenant Trust has announced the 2022 funding dates for its Force for Change programme, which will focus on delivering sustainable changes or improvements for local Armed Forces communities across the UK.

Grants of up to £10,000 over a one-year period are available, with projects required to start within one month of award.

To be eligible to apply, organisations must be one of the following:

  • An established registered charity or community interest company (CIC) with substantial recent experience of supporting Armed Forces communities.
  • An Armed Forces unit or base.
  • A local authority.
  • A school.

This year, the programme is intended to be broad to allow those who know the most about what is needed to deliver their ideas. Projects must:

  • Demonstrate how they are needed and what gap they are filling.
  • Help people from within the Armed Forces community to address a specific need that they are experiencing.
  • Have been developed with people from Armed Forces communities.
  • Support longer-term change.

Grants can be used to cover the majority of costs needed to deliver the project or activity.

The next deadline is 30 May 2022.


How To Apply

The following deadlines are in place:

  • 30 May 2022.
  • 8 August 2022.
  • 14 August 2022.

The 2022 guidance notes, frequently asked questions, online application portal and other resources are available on the Trust's websites.
