Applications are now open for charities to apply for a Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund small grant

20 Nov 2023

Charities are invited to apply for grants of up to £10,000 to support veterans and their families.

Founded in 1803, Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund is the oldest military charity of its kind, supporting the armed forces community on behalf of the Lloyd’s market. We focus on improving the transition to civilian life for veterans and their families who need the most help.

Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund partners with military charities who are best placed to meet the mental health and employment needs of the military community and support veterans and their families to build successful civilian lives and careers.

We currently have three-year partnerships with The Forces Employment Charity, Combat Stress, and Scotty’s Little Soldiers. The partnerships focus on improving employment prospects for spouses and partners of serving and ex-forces personnel, conducting pioneering research into coping mechanisms for managing veterans’ mental health and supporting children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Armed Forces.

Charities supporting the military community can now apply for a small grant of up to £15,000. In 2022, the Contact Group, Fighting with Pride, Care After Combat and Give US Time received a small grant from the Lloyd’s Patriotic Fund.
