Significant work has been undertaken in schools and local authorities across Scotland to ensure that Armed Forces Children are supported so they can optimise their experience of being part of an Armed Forces family and are not disadvantaged in education and learning.

Funding panels will recognise the incredibly challenging and unprecedented issues that COVID-19 will continue to have on schools and local authorities in the coming months.

Sometimes, schools and local authorities need to access additional funds to support Armed Forces children in the most effective way. The ADES National Transitions Officer recognises that it is not always easy to identify which funds are available, what grants are most relevant to a specific project, and the best way to approach the completion of an application form.

A partnership group worked collaboratively to produce this document to provide schools and local authorities in Scotland with a guide on the funding streams that are available in 2021/22, along with advice on completing the application forms. This advice comes from members of the funding panels, as well as schools and local authorities that have been successful in applying for the grants.

Applying for funding, get in touch…

Before applying for grant funding, schools and local authorities are encouraged to contact to discuss their project or proposal.

NOTE: It is also important to check eligibility by reading the full guidance documents from the original source, to ensure that time is not wasted submitting an application that is not appropriate for a funding stream.

All information is accurate as of publication date June 2021. This document will be updated yearly.
