This £4 million programme is designed to providing funding for innovative and new ways of working to reduce serious stress in veterans, their carers and families. Applications close on 31st December 2018; and funding decisions will be made in February 2019.
This programme will 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; support projects where there is good evidence to suggest that the idea might produce better outcomes than current sources of support on offer. Grants under this programme will be made to Single Lead Organisations who will manage a portfolio. The work within this portfolio will support the beneficiaries, who are veterans that are very unwell, their carers and their families.
The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust has launched an online contact list for interested organisations to be able to get in touch with each other. Once you are on this list; you will be able to see the details of all of the other organisations that have joined the list; and you’ll be able to access it at any time to see if additional updates have been made. You’ll need to agree to use the information on the list just to contact other organisations that might have an interest in this programme; and not for any other purpose.

Alternatively, use the Cobseo Members Directory to look up organisations who might not yet feature on this new tool but might match your proposed portfolio.
