The Royal British Legion directly helps thousands of beneficiaries every year. It also provide funds to other organisations, manages trusts and scholarship funds and helps the wider Armed Forces community in many ways.
The Royal British Legion’s External Grants programme is open to applications from organisations running, or planning, charitable activities in support of the Armed Forces community.
Applications for projects supporting the following outcome themes will be prioritised:
- Employment and training
- Family support
- Homelessness and outreach
- Supporting the elderly
The Legion is not inviting applications for multi-year funding at this time. Applications will only be considered for ‘one off’ payments. Continuation funding may be applied for in following years. The typical grant award is not likely to exceed £50,000, and smaller applications are encouraged.
