Armed Forces Covenant Fund for families in stress - Deadline Reminder

21-Jun-2017

 

Applicants are advised that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is still accepting applications to the Families in Stress priority of the Covenant Fund.

The Ministry of Defence’s £10 million Armed Forces Covenant Fund supports the armed forces community across the UK.

The funding is for projects that support families of serving personnel who are experiencing a significant stressful life event and would benefit from an involvement from a support group or similar organiser who can offer specialised, localised/easily accessible and immediate support.

These life events can cover various aspects including:

  • Life-changing injury,
  • Bereavement,
  • Domestic Abuse,
  • Relationship Break-up,
  • Those subject to the civil or service justice system
  • Mental health issues.

Grants of between £20,000 and £300,000 are available for programmes of work lasting between two to three years.

Set out as a two stage process, the deadline for Expressions of Interest is midday on 26th June 2017.

For more details, and how to apply, visit the Government website.
