This programme is open to Armed Forces charities, CICs and charities/CICs that have substantial experience in working with veterans. Organisations will need to have a good understanding of mental health needs and how to support them, including where to signpost veterans to if they are not well.
One-year grants of £35,000 and two-year grants of £70,000 are available, as well as smaller Local Grants which offer up £20,000 for activity-based projects and you can apply for existing projects. Examples of these include:
- arts/culture activities such as music or theatre
- getting outside, for example gardening activities
- heritage projects such as conservation or archaeology.
This is a rolling programme with multiple rounds.
The next deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 6 September 2019.
Decisions for this date will be awarded by the end of November 2019.
