The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust are looking for applications from organisations working in Inverclyde to apply for their Positive Pathways Fund
The fund aims to
• support high quality work that benefits veterans who have mental health needs
• enable the organisations that are delivering this work to build referral pathways, both into and onwards, from the support they offer working collaboratively with our Strategic Partners
This funding will support projects which aim to improve veterans' mental health and wellbeing by getting veterans out and active. Project should come under one of four themes.
• Arts and culture
• Getting outside
Fixed, one-year grants of £35,000 are available.
You can apply if your organisation is:
• Armed Forces Charity: registered charities that specifically provide support to beneficiaries from the Armed Forces community.
• Armed Forces CIC: a Community Interest Company that specifically seeks to achieve social objectives for members of the Armed Forces Community.
For clarification, a veteran is anyone who has served for at least one day in Her Majesty's Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Mariners who have seen duty on legally defined military operations.
To be considered in round 5, you'll need to have your application in by noon on 30 November and can expect to receive your decision by the end of February 2021.
