Strengthening and Empowering Delivery of the Covenant:
Evaluation of the Strengthening Delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant Programme
Under the Strengthening Delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant Programme The Covenant Fund awarded £6.6M through two rounds of funding to clusters of Local Authorities (LAs).
They used the funding to work with other Local Authorities in their areas enabling them to deliver projects linked to needs identified by their Local Covenant Partnerships and find ways to ensure that Armed Forces communities locally could access the right types of services and support.
Projects typically sought to build local capacity and improve awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant. In the second round, funding was also made available to establish drop-in centres in places where these did not exist.
This report is an external evaluation by RAND Europe. The report found that the funding had a significant positive impact on delivery of the Covenant
How the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust responded to the Covid-19 pandemic
2020 was no ordinary year. The Covid-19 pandemic caused various challenges for many organisations supporting the Forces community and the Trust was determined to do all we could to keep supporting our grant holders and their beneficiaries.
We’ve published a report that explores how the Trust supported Armed Forces communities that were particularly affected by Covid, and the organisations that supported them.
This programme evaluation explores the impact of the Veterans Should Not Be Forgotten programme on vulnerable veterans with reduced social contact.
