Armed Forces Day Grant Scheme

Since 2009, Armed Forces Day has been marked annually with events large and small throughout the UK.  In support of this event, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is providing funding to help organisations and individuals in the UK host an Armed Forces Day event this summer.

Last year, events took place in all parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They included Armed Forces Day tea parties, parades, big band concerts, civil war military re-enactments and live and static demonstrations.

Local councils, organisations, schools, ex-service organisations and individuals in the UK are eligible to apply for funding.  The event should be held on or in the weeks around National Armed Forces Day which will next be celebrated on Saturday 24 June 2017.
