A new £6m fund launched on 12th May to support armed forces charities/CICs supporting Armed Forces communities affected by Covid-19.
Grants up to £60k are available to apply for with larger grants up to £125k available for exceptional circumstances. The funding is available to apply for now. It will be distributed in the form of grants administered by the Armed Forces Covenant Trust and will be given to charities that work in the following key nine areas affected by the impact of the coronavirus:
· support to the elderly (including Care Homes)
· mental and physical health
· domestic violence
· criminal justice system
· service families (including childcare)
The application process and guidance is published on the Covenant Fund Trust website – there is also really useful FAQs and a video to support organisations.
