This £4 million programme is designed to providing funding for innovative and new ways of working to reduce serious stress in veterans, their carers and families.
This programme will fund a small number of projects that will enable charities and health professionals to work together to develop and try new ideas that they have developed with veterans and their carers and families. The programme will support projects where there is good evidence to suggest that the idea might produce outcomes for veterans and their carers and families that are better than current sources of support on offer.
The programme opens for applications today, 1st October 2018. The full programme guidance will be available on that date. The programme will make grants to lead organisations; who will then work with delivery organisations. There will be an overarching evaluation. You can read more about the roles of the lead organisation and a delivery organisation, or do have a look at the diagram we have produced. If you are thinking of applying, perhaps think about how you might connect with other organisations. (Covenant Fund News, 1st October 2018)
