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 now for funding from the final application round of 2021.
The Foundation offers grants of up to £30,000 to cover every aspect of social care including, homelessness, employability, poverty, disability, welfare issues, mental health, marriage guidance, care during old age and confidence building.
The grants can be used to cover a range of project costs. The Foundation will also consider funding running costs of eligible organisations, provided sustainability is being considered.
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.
The Foundation receives its funding from its donors and subscribers to the Veterans’ Lottery which was launched in 2016.
The final deadline for 2021 applications is 12 November for consideration in December 2021.
