The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust are making grants of up to £120,000 available for projects across the UK that pilot better ways of supporting veterans and their families when they are in a hospital setting.
To be eligible for this funding, the applicants you must be:
- a Veteran Aware NHS hospital in England that is a member or aspirant member of the Veterans’ Covenant Healthcare Alliance (VCHA) at time of application or
- a hospital in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that can show support of the aims of the Veterans’ Covenant Healthcare Alliance
The Supporting Armed Forces in Acute Hospital Settings programme will pilot innovative projects that provide targeted support for veterans.
The programme will provide funding towards the costs of employing the full time equivalent of an additional NHS member of staff to deliver the project for up to two years, as well as line management costs, a modest communications budget, and training materials.
The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 4th June 2021.
