Cash to combat isolation

Grants of up to £20,000 are available for one-year projects designed to combat isolation in military communities, particularly as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

To be eligible to apply for the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust Force for Change programme, your organisation must be:

  • 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.

The project must fit under one of two main themes:

  • Empowering Armed Forces communities to become more engaged in their local area.
  • Providing opportunities for isolated members of the Armed Forces community to take part in activities that improve general well-being.

The deadline is noon on Friday 11 September 2020 for round one of applications and noon on Monday 30 November 2020 for round two.

For bigger projects, fixed two-year grants of £70,000 are also available under the Tackling Loneliness programme.
