Bury Council has launched a support fund to help veterans and cadets in the borough.

Groups can apply for up to £2,500 to support:

  • Increasing opportunities for cadets, veterans or both to engage fully in local life in the neighbourhoods that they live
  • Opportunities for cadets, veterans or both to connect with each other such as through peer networks
  • Initiatives to address barriers to taking part in cadet or veterans related activities.
  • Mental health and wellbeing provision specifically addressing particular circumstances and the lived experience of veterans
  • Schemes which will increase the financial resilience of cadet or veteran households both in terms of immediate hardship provision and longer term resilience, eg increased income from skills development, retraining or improving digital literacy and access to digital resources
  • Initiatives which celebrate the role of cadets and veterans within the heritage of Bury, celebrating our past and present to inspire our future.

Who can apply?

Applications are welcome from any community group, local network or voluntary organisations based in or working with veterans or cadet communities or both within the borough of Bury.
