Armed Forces Covenant: Local Grants

3 July 2018

The Armed Forces Covenant local grants scheme offers grants of up to £20,000 for projects that respond to the local needs of the armed forces community and improve recognition of the Armed Forces Covenant, and that:

  • help integrate armed forces and civilian communities across the UK,
  • deliver valuable local services to the armed forces community.

Who can apply?

Registered charities and Community Interest Companies can apply. Statutory organisations and armed forces units with an UIN are also eligible.

"Applicants are expected to have experience and a track record of working with the armed forces community, as well as a real understanding of the issues facing the armed forces community. We will be asking for evidence of real engagement and partnership working - with either an armed forces charity or an armed forces unit. This is not a general fund for organisations to support their core activities simply by adding members of the armed forces community to their beneficiary group in order to apply for funding."

Local Covenant Partnerships

"All applicants should work closely with their local covenant partnerships to ensure that their project is properly connected locally, responds to recognised need and does not duplicate other provision."

For groups in Bradford district, contact Bradford Armed Forces Community Covenant Partnership email
