Applications are now open for micro-grants of up to £500 for installations to support their Remembrance Day activities for the centenary of the First World War.
This programme will allow communities to remember and commemorate by accessing our silhouettes for benches and chairs free of charge thanks to the support of the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
These silhouettes can be placed within community halls, places of worship and places of education, bringing to mind those who went to war and did not return. You can apply for an award to purchase up to 10 silhouettes.
As part of the award, your organisation will need to hold a self-funded event to bring your local community together.
Applications are open until the 30th June 2018.
Who can apply for an award?
Your organisation will need to be one of the following:
* A charity
* A Community Interest Company (CIC)
* A school
* A place of worship
* An Armed Forces base
* A chapel or other place of worship, or multi-faith facility within a hospital or Armed Forces base, where people would not otherwise be able to engage in remembrance and engagement activity without financial resources
* A community organisation with a constitution and a community space (Including Parish Councils)
You can find out more information and apply here. https://www.therebutnotthere.org.uk/taking-part/armed-forces-covenant-fund-trust/
