The Legion’s External Grants programme is open to applications. It is for groups supporting serving and ex-service people and their dependants who are suffering financially.

Applications for the following three themes will be prioritised:

  • Employment and training
  • Family support
  • Homelessness and outreach

The typical award is below £20,000 – smaller applications are encouraged. Salary contributions of up to £35,000 will be considered for ‘homelessness and outreach’ projects.

It is a two stage application process. The next deadline for first stage bids is 25th May 2015. Full details here:
