The Scottish Government’s Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund (AFTSRF) was launched last year to provide up to £1 million of financial assistance to organisations that provided support to the Armed Forces community and had suffered a financial impact as a result of the COVID pandemic. However, some of this funding was unclaimed with £215,000 remaining available for distribution.


Further information on the fund and how to apply are contained within the attached document.  Organisations should note the closing date for applications is 14 February 2022.
