Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust – Tackling Loneliness Programme

Deadline 30th October 2020

The Tackling Loneliness programme will address social isolation by targeting specific groups within the Armed Forces community who are traditionally harder to reach.

The funding is intended to support Armed Forces units, registered charities and community interest companies with experience of working with the Armed Forces community with projects that reduce social isolation by tackling loneliness among groups who do not traditionally engage with provision.

You can apply for up to £70,000 for up to two years.

Projects should also fit with at least one of the main themes of the programme:

  • Building stronger social networks and friendships.
  • Improving access to local activities and provision.
  • Building emotional resilience to overcome the causes of loneliness.
  • Empowering Armed Forces communities to become more independent.
