Funding available to help armed forces charities be more inclusive

The government is to fund research to ensure service personnel charities are accessible and inclusive for female veterans.

The move is part of a wider grants initiative from the Office for Veterans’ Affairs and the Cabinet Office to better understand the lives of specific groups of veterans and to promote diversity and inclusivity in support.

The funding into charity support for female veterans aims to help charities remove barriers that are preventing them from accessing support.

This funding covers grants up of up to £75,000. Any charities and non-profit organisations in the UK are invited to apply by the deadline of 14 January 2022.

“It is important that any specific barriers and issues related to female veterans accessing veterans’ services are correctly addressed,” according to the grant application documents.

“Applications are invited to share details of their project, including outcomes related to the improvement and access of charitable services for women who have served in the Armed Forces in the United Kingdom.

Charities, along with universities, are invited to apply for further grants as part of the wider initiative to improve inclusion in support for veterans. These including funding to better understand the lives of armed forces veterans from ethnic minority backgrounds and non-UK veterans. Both these research grants are for £95,000.
