The final round of the Armistice and Armed Forces Communities programme closes on 1 October 2018 – hundreds of awards have already been made to schools, community organisations and places of worship across the UK…

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust is running a programme to fund the costs of up to 10 silhouettes for schools, community groups, places of worship and local charities. Applying is easy. Your organisation will need to fill in a short form and will need to commit to holding a community event in November 2018.

This event does not need to be complex. It could involve local veterans from your community; young people or perhaps a local military base. The event will need to provide an opportunity to reflect on the Armistice but also to think about the Armed Forces today. If awarded, the evocative silhouettes will belong to your organisation and you can use them in future years.
