Positive Pathway Programme - Reopen for applications



The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust has announced a further two rounds of funding to the popular Positive Pathway programme, thanks to funding from HM Treasury. The Positive Pathways programme awards grants for activities for veterans, which can have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing. It funds projects that are shaped and led by veterans, for veterans. As a result of Covid-19, it can currently be challenging for organisations to plan ahead, so rounds 4 and 5 of the programme will only offer fixed grants for one year's worth of activity.

As a result of COVID19 action taken to reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus, HQ Army authorised a temporary increase to the Single Withdrawal Limit (SWL) via Chip ‘n’ Pin from £250 to £500. This position has been reviewed and based on the low customer volume visiting the Post Office and, as a result of the additional opening times, the SWL has been reduced back down to the previously authorised limit of £250. The reverted SWL will take effect as of Monday 10 August 2020.
