The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund has £10M to award; and the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust is asking for your views on how it should be spent. The Positive Pathways Programme will fund projects that will develop and run activities supportive to ex-forces mental health and wellbeing. The consultation is asking about what types of projects could be supported; and about how the programme might link projects into wider work to support veterans.
Sonia Howe, Director of Policy at the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, said:
“We will use the information from the consultation to develop our programme guidance; and this will set out the criteria for projects applying for a grant. There’s not long left to share your views on what this programme should support; and this is a great opportunity to shape how we deliver this funding.”
The consultation closes on 15 March; and the programme will open for applications in May 2019.
