Small Grants, Big Changes, a report by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and the Directory of Social Change (DSC), examines small grants and small grants programmes via a literature review and a survey of organisations that had received or applied for small grants.
Across the VPPP portfolios, the Trust has seen some innovative examples of how partner organisations work together to ensure that they deliver a seamless and comprehensive service to their beneficiaries. One of the topics high on the agenda at the moment is resilience and mental wellness among staff, and ensuring that organisations take steps to protect and enhance the mental wellbeing of their workers, particularly when the mental drain on them is high due to the intense work that they deliver.
The Trust hosted a webinar in June 2023 which explored the peer support, safe spaces and essential collaboration at the heart of the VPPP Programme.
The Trust commissioned Neighbourly Lab, the Campaign to End Loneliness and the King’s Centre for Military Health Research to conduct a year long evaluation of the 60 projects on their Tackling Loneliness Grant. Focusing on ‘Reach’ and ‘Service Design’ in the creation of services to support Armed Forces individuals experiencing loneliness a toolkit was produced.
