The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust makes grants to support the Armed Forces community.

We manage the grant programmes funded by the Covenant Fund. We also run wider funding programmes that support the Armed Forces community.

The people who benefit from our grants are from the Armed Forces community. This includes serving personnel, families, veterans and families of veterans. In some of our programmes, the wider community around a base or in an area with an Armed Forces population can also benefit; as we will support projects under one of our programmes that will help to encourage good relations between Armed Forces and civilian communities. Some of our grants can be small, but make a big difference; other grants can be substantial, like the grant that we made to the Veterans’ Gateway

The popular Armed Forces Covenant Fund Local Grants Programme makes grants of up to £20,000 for projects that meet local needs, or help bring Armed Forces and civilian communities together.

We also run the Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund and the Veterans Community Centres Programme

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. For more information on the Armed Forces Covenant please visit
