Part of the Veterans’ Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, the Positive Pathways programme funded projects that develop and run activities supporting the mental health and wellbeing of ex-Forces.
To be eligible to apply, your organisation must be an Armed-Forces-supporting charity or CIC. Under this programme, we cannot support:
- charities or CICs that do not primarily support Armed Forces veterans
- a brand new charity or CIC with no track record of supporting this community
- local authorities, schools or other public sector organisations – though you may be able to act as a partner organisation
- organisations that are not a registered charity or CIC
- partnerships or social enterprises – though you may be able to act as a partner to a lead organisation.
A full list of eligibility is available in the programme guidance below. If you have received an award from an earlier round of Positive Pathways, there are additional eligibility criteria, so please do read the guidance carefully.
Fixed, one-year grants of £35,000.
Themes and priorities
Projects should have a clearly identified activity for veterans to take part in. We don’t expect to fund applications that are unable to describe a planned activity, or describe a list of potential activities that may take place.
We’d like to clearly see how veterans will benefit from the projects we support and your project should come under one of four themes.
- Arts and culture
- Getting outside
