The Covenant Fund makes grants in support of the Armed Forces Covenant. There are four overall themes that the Covenant Fund must take into account now and in future years when making decisions.
- Non-core healthcare services for veterans;
- Removing barriers to family life;
- Extra support after service for those that need help; and
- Measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the Armed Forces community to participate as citizens

Compton Dando, in Somerset, will be bringing their community together to remember all those who fought during the First World War, especially the three villagers who died during the war: Ben Harding, Henry Harvey and Fred Light. The project was awarded three silhouettes under round one of the programme These silhouettes will be placed in the village as reminders of the three soldiers who died between 1914-1918. There will be an exhibition which will be open for three days from Friday 9th November to Sunday 11th November between 11.30am and 3.30.pm, in St Mary’s Church. There will be a church service on the Sunday, followed by the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial. The church bell ringers will also be ‘Ringing for Peace’ on Sunday. Teas and cakes will be available on all three days.
10 Silhouettes were awarded Guild Chapel in Stratford-upon-Avon. Each silhouette will represent a soldier from Stratford-upon-Avon who fought in the First World War with a plaque giving their name, regiment and dates. Many of those who went to war and never returned were former pupils of King Edward VI School and the school is collaborating with the Chapel for a special ‘Evening of Remembrance’ as part of the project. On Tuesday November 7th, the ‘old’ boys of KES and of Stratford will be commemorated by the ‘new’ boys who attend the school. Ten pupils will sit next to the ten silhouettes, standing to read their name, regiment and story.
