Strengthening and Empowering Delivery of the Covenant: Evaluation of the Strengthening Delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant Programme
This report is an external evaluation of the Strengthening Delivery of the Covenant Programme.
Under the Strengthening Delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant Programme The Covenant Fund awarded £6.6M through two rounds of funding to clusters of Local Authorities (LAs).
They used the funding to work with other Local Authorities in their areas enabling them to deliver projects linked to needs identified by their Local Covenant Partnerships and find ways to ensure that Armed Forces communities locally could access the right types of services and support.
Projects typically sought to build local capacity and improve awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant. In the second round, funding was also made available to establish drop-in centres in places where these did not exist.
The projects were evaluated by RAND Europe. The report found that the funding had a significant positive impact on delivery of the Covenant
