NAAFI, in collaboration with the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust (the Trust) is delighted to announce the launch of the 2021 round of the NAAFI Welfare Fund.
The NAAFI Fund awards grants between £5,000 and £20,000 to the British Armed Forces for projects that improve the quality of life for serving personnel and their families. This follows an incredibly successful initial round of funding in 2020 and all successful recipients will be advised in March this year.
The 2021 round of NAAFI funding will open in April and the successful recipients will be notified in September.
This funding will continue to be provided annually in the years to come.
Steve Marshall, NAAFI’s Managing Director explains:
“We are delighted to offer this funding to our Armed Forces personnel and their families. NAAFI exists to enhance the welfare of our forces communities and we are incredibly excited to be able to provide funding for many of the great projects that will bring people together, help reduce isolation and enhance the lives of those NAAFI was set up 100 years ago to serve”
