Target audience: veterans, charities, third sector organisations
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust has launched a consultation to help shape a new £4 million programme designed to providing funding for innovative and new ways of working to reduce serious stress in veterans, their carers and families.
The consultation will explore how the programme should be delivered and the types of projects that should be funded. They are keen to hear from anyone with a view, but it is particularly relevant to veterans, charities with an interest in the Armed Forces Community, charities with an interest in mental health or health bodies.
This programme is looking to fund a small number of projects that will enable charities and health professionals to work together to develop and try new ideas that they have developed with veterans and their carers and families. The programme will support projects where there is good evidence to suggest that the idea might produce outcomes that are better than current sources of support on offer.
The consultation will run until 19th June 2018. The programme will open for applications in September 2018. Grants will be awarded in February 2019.
