The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (The Trust) has launched a summer consultation and they want to hear from you.
The Trust wants to ensure the funding they provide reaches those who need it most and makes a positive impact on the challenges currently affecting the Armed Forces community.
From 2024, the way the Trust distributes Covenant Fund monies will change and they want your help to plan the best use of this funding over the next three years. While the four key themes of the Covenant Fund will remain the same, how the money is distributed can be tailored to meet the needs of the community.
Throughout June and July, the Trust will be offering lots of opportunities to have your say.
The Trust’s summer consultation is your chance to help shape their three-year plan. They want to hear from people within the Armed Forces community as well as those working to support them. You can complete the consultation via their website and share your views about what you think the Trust should focus on over the next three years.
If you only have a few minutes to spare, you can still have your say by getting involved with their sister campaign, Tell Us One Thing. To make it as easy as possible for you to contribute, during June you’ll have the opportunity to answer one question each week and tell the Trust just one thing about the Armed Forces community.
Sonia Howe, Director of Policy at the Trust said:
“We really hope you’ll take part in the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust’s consultation this summer and tell us about the challenges you see for the Armed Forces community, now and in the future.
We had a fantastic response to our last consultation in 2022 which helped to shape the programmes that we are running this year. We now want to know what we should do over the next 3 years.
Your views and ideas are so important in helping shape our future funding programmes; so that we can ensure that our funding makes the biggest difference.”
Have your say
The consultation runs from 12 June to 31 July 2023. You can complete the consultation by visiting the Trust’s website.
