The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (the Trust) has awarded more than £859,000 to 100 projects focused on bringing our Forces communities together during the Covid-19 pandemic.
With various social restrictions still in place across the county, the Trust were keen to support engaging and enjoyable projects that sought to overcome the current challenges we are all facing and deliver activities that bring people together in a safe way.
Each of the projects supported had to show their activities could take place safely during any ongoing social restrictions. This has led to a great mix of distance learning, digital comms and finding new ways to come together when we must stay apart.
Sonia Howe, Director of Policy for the Trust said: “We were thrilled to receive such a variety of project ideas and it’s been great to learn about the efforts being made in Forces communities across the UK to ensure that people are being supported, included and helped to feel a sense of ‘togetherness’ even when we are apart.”
