Supporting comradeship, connectiveness and engagement with veterans: Army Regimental, Corps, Headquarters and Associations

Grants for projects to build comradeship with veterans from recent conflicts

For projects to build comradeship with veterans from Afghanistan and other recent conflicts

Closes 10th March 2022

This programme is supported through the Afghanistan Veterans Fund.

The Afghanistan Veterans’ Fund aims to increase capacity in services and initiatives that offer supportive comradeship, engagement and wellbeing efforts for those in the Armed Forces community impacted by events in Afghanistan, and the wider veterans community.

The Office for Veterans Affairs has asked the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (the Trust) to run programmes that will award grants to improve wellbeing, resilience and promote good mental health, responding to increased needs in veterans who have served in Afghanistan and other recent conflicts and the wider veterans community.


This programme is only open to Army Regimental and Corps Associations. Regimental and Corps Headquarters can also apply, providing that they are charities.

What’s available

You can apply for a fixed grant of either £10,000 or £35,000. Your project should show how it would help you engage and support veterans and their families, offering support and comradeship particularly to those who don’t currently take part in the activities that you offer. You can use all or some of your grant to help you develop better ways of reaching engaging veterans using media and digital means of engagement.
