Armed Forces Covenant Fund

About the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust 

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (the Trust) supports the Armed Forces Covenant by delivering funding programmes that create real change to Armed Forces communities across the UK.

They are a charity and are classified as a Non-Departmental Public Body, or NDPB. They look after the Armed Forces Covenant Fund, worth £10M each year.

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund has four broad funding themes now and in future years:

  1. Non-core healthcare services for veterans 
  2. Removing barriers to family life 
  3. Extra support, both in and after Service, for those that need help
  4. measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the Armed Forces community to participate as citizens

The main beneficiaries of grants are from the Armed Forces community. This includes serving personnel, families, veterans and families of veterans. In some programmes, the wider community around a base or in an area with an Armed Forces population can also benefit.
