We want to remind families of the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust’s new funding programme to bring Forces communities together during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Forces Communities Together programme will award small grants of up to £10,000 towards creative and engaging projects, that can be delivered under social distancing restrictions, for people from Armed Forces communities who are isolated as a result of the pandemic.
The project should provide a clear activity that will enhance mood or wellbeing or reduce isolation.
Your application will need to show what you will do, how it will help, how you know people would like it and how many people it will help.
Registered charities (including community-interest companies), schools and Armed Forces bases and units can apply.
Applicants are expected to have experience and a track record of working with the Armed Forces, as well as a real understanding of the challenges facing their local community.
The deadline to apply is 30 June at noon.
Decisions will be made by the end of August and projects need to be started by mid-October.
