What does the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust do?

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust run a programme that makes grants of up to £20,000 for local projects that support the Armed Forces Community and a programme to bring Armed Forces and civilian communities together through the Armistice and Armed Forces Communities programme.

They also have a programme that allows organisations to work together to provide better support for veterans that are experiencing serious stress, along with their carers and families.

About the Armed Forces Covenant Fund

For the first 3 years, the Covenant Fund was based within the Ministry of Defence, and in April 2018, following a decision that it should become independent, it moved to the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families, are treated fairly.

Funding themes

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund has 4 broad funding themes:

  1. removing barriers to family life
  2. extra support after service for those that need help
  3. measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the armed forces community to participate as citizens
  4. non-core healthcare services for veterans
