Deadline 30th November
Part of the Veterans’ Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, the Positive Pathways Programme will fund projects that develop and run activities that support the mental health and wellbeing of ex-forces. It’s eligibility and priorities are based on the outcomes from a programme consultation run earlier.
Who Can Apply?
This programme is open to Armed Forces charities and CICs; and charities/CICs that have substantial experience in working with veterans.
Your organisation will need to have a good understanding of mental health needs and how to support them, including where to signpost veterans to if they are not well.
In the consultation, people told them they felt it was important to fund lots of smaller projects, to give veterans more choice. So, one-year grants of £35,000 and two-year grants of £70,000 are available.
Projects must be activity based. This might be:
- arts/culture activities such as music or theatre
- getting outside, for example gardening activities
- heritage projects such as conservation or archaeology.
You can apply for existing projects.
Want to apply for less? Why not try their Local Grants Programme, which awards grants of up to £20,000?
