Covenant Fund

 

Armed forces covenant

The Edinburgh Partnership has an agreement with the armed forces in Edinburgh to help strengthen ties between them and local communities. You can find out more about this agreement on the UK Government website. This is called the Armed Forces Covenant.

Each year there is £10 million Covenant Fund available to support the armed forces community under several strands.
