GOOD CAUSES FUND

Our ‘good causes’ fund offers grants to groups and communities wishing to undertake challenging, adventurous activities which will help to improve health, wellbeing and recovery in armed forces personnel, including Wounded In Service veterans.

WHO CAN APPLY

Groups and organisations from the armed forces community are invited to submit bids to receive a grant from this good causes fund. Specifically, the trustees wish to award grants to groups or organisations which create the opportunity to improve mental and physical wellbeing in armed forces personnel, including WIS veterans, through sport, challenge or adventure.

WHAT EVENTS WILL QUALIFY FOR FUNDING?

Bids should be submitted for one-off events where the physical activity serves a wider, greater purpose. The activity should be challenging or adventurous and provide a highly rewarding developmental and transformative experience for those involved. For WIS veterans, the activity should help to rebuild lives by providing the inspirational goals that help them move beyond their disability, regain confidence and recapture their zest for life.

HOW IT WORKS

Bids will be scrutinised by a judging panel with representatives from the Team Army Sports Foundation. The expectation is that most bids will be for sums up to £5,000 although activities of exceptional value may receive a grant up to £10,000. Bids should be no longer than two pages of text plus any associated maps, charts and costings. Submissions should highlight features that promote diversity and inclusivity and describe how the activity will be promoted across media channels and news outlets.

 

The Trustees are keen to use this opportunity to promote the work of the charity and to reflect Team Ethos core values of creating wellbeing through sport, challenge and adventure.

This is a rolling process and bids can be submitted at any time.
