Aims/priorities: With funding from the Veterans’ Lottery, the Veterans’ Foundation aims to help charities and other not-for-profit organisations in Great Britain to support serving and former members of the British Armed Forces who may be facing challenging circumstances.

The funding can be used for projects covering a range of aspects of social care for the Armed Forces community, including:

  • Reducing homelessness.
  • Increasing employment.
  • Providing welfare and medical support.
  • Increasing confidence and social interaction.
  • Reducing dependence on alcohol and drugs.
  • Reducing poverty.
  • Disability.
  • Mental health.
  • Marriage guidance.
  • Care during old

Who can apply? All registered charities and other organisations that support the Armed Forces community (veterans, those serving and immediate dependants), including seafaring veterans who have served on operations, can apply.

Eligible organisation types include:

  • Charities.
  • Not-for-profit organisations, including CICs limited by guarantee.
  • Community projects.

Priority is given to charities and organisations who can demonstrate that they are directly involved in the provision of support to those in need, as well as well-run organisations of low to medium wealth.

Grant amount: The maximum grant available is £30,000. Applications for spread grants, eg, a total of £30,000 awarded as £10,000 per year for three years, will also be considered.

Application process: Applications are usually considered four times a year with notification of decisions in around two weeks of the Grants Committee meeting. The next deadline is 20 May 2022 for consideration in June 2022. The Foundation prefers to receive applications electronically but in exceptional cases a paper application can be submitted.

Guidance notes and the application form can be found on the Veterans' Foundation website.

Deadline: Friday 20 May 2022
