Covenant Fund

There is funding available from the national Covenant Fund. There are two routes for applications:

  • small grants, for applications up to a maximum of £20,000
  • large grants, for applications of between £20,001 and £500,000

The following three priorities have been set for the financial year 2015-16 and will be reviewed for 2016-17:

  1. Community integration (to create strong links between Armed Forces and civilian communities, improving perceptions, attitudes and understanding [mostly for local community projects]
  2. The coordination and delivery of support to the Armed Forces community (partnerships and portfolios work best) [mostly strategic solutions, applied through the large grants route]
  3. Former service personnel in the criminal justice system (person-centred service provision that is well-publicised, accessible, joined up and end-to-end; must not replace statutory support) [mostly strategic solutions, applied through the large grants route]

The grant can pay for most of the things that may be needed for the project whether it's people's time, buying or hiring equipment, or minor improvements to land or buildings. The Council would be happy to assist any organisations interested in applying for the Covenant Fund. If you are interested in a partnership with us please contact:
