£1 million boost for Forces charities

Armed Forces Funding signage

A £1 million support fund for Armed Forces charities is on offer to help offset the fall in income caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Organisations can apply for grants from the Scottish Government’s Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund until 16 July, with funding set to be released by the end of August.

A staggering 75 per cent of charities have suffered a negative impact on their finances due to coronavirus, according to a survey by the Scottish Charity Regulator in May last year.

The new Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund will be administered by the Corra Foundation, which specialises in managing financial support.
