Sustaining Support to Armed Forces Communities programme

The Armed Forces Covenant Trust has launched a new, £6 million programme to support existing charitable activities and services for Armed Forces communities, in need of short-term grant support due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Sustaining Support to Armed Forces Communities programme will award one-year grants of up to £100,000 to Armed Forces charities and charities with an existing track record of supporting Armed Forces communities. There are two funding options available;

The first is project based and will support the costs of existing activities that are well used by the Forces community.

The second track, for Armed Forces charities only, will support core costs. Applicants can request funding for up to two, full-time-equivalent staff, where it will enable your organisation to keep delivering the services your beneficiaries use and value. You can also apply for help with transformational costs to help put your Armed Forces charity in a better position to deliver services and support in the future.
