Are you looking at setting up a lunch club, activity group or social event in your village hall? Do you have a core group of past members of the Armed Forces over the age of 65 or those who completed National Service?
Ex-Forces Support North Yorkshire has access to grants for communities and groups who are interested in putting on some kind of event or series of events for the veterans or ex-National Service members in your area.
For any ideas you might have or would like to explore further you are welcome to get in touch to discuss them. There is a very simple application process and groups can apply for amounts in the region of £500-£750, and no more than £1,000. Past grants have been awarded to tea dances, lunch groups, days out and transport costs.
