In October 2020, the Trust launched a new app, the AFCT Project Finder.

The AFCT Project Finder is a great way for the Armed Forces community to find out more about, and access, Trust funded projects throughout the UK.

The app is free to download and is available on both the Apple and Android networks.

Every listing on the app has been funded by the Trust and supports those within the Forces community, whether serving personnel, veterans or Service families.
