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

Zelah is a small rural community in Cornwall, who are receiving 3 silhouettes. The people in the village are isolated from the church by fields and a major road; and have limited access to their War Memorial. They don’t have a community building, but they do have a bench and an orchard in the heart of the village. Nine men fell in WW1 from Zelah.
Their event will start at midnight on Sunday 11th November with the beginning of a Silent Watch. Their Tommy will sit on the commune bench in the community orchard. From midnight to midnight a local resident will sit beside him with a lighted candle between them. They will hold a community event at midday, involving different local groups. The two additional silhouettes will sit in the Church at St Allen
