Welcome to The Royal British Legion's External Grants Portal

The Royal British Legion's External Grants programme is open to applications from organisations running, or planning, charitable activities in support of the Armed Forces community.

Applications for projects supporting the following outcome themes will be prioritised:

  • Employment and training
  • Family support
  • Homelessness and outreach
  • Supporting the elderly

Stage One applications must be completed in the first instance, with successful applicants being invited to complete a Stage Two application. Please note that the Legion is not inviting applications for multi-year funding at this time. Applications will only be considered for 'one off' payments. Continuation funding may be applied for in following years.

The typical grant award is not likely to exceed £50,000 – smaller applications are encouraged.

Grant applications are typically reviewed by the Grants Panels within two months of the Stage Two Submission Deadline. The key dates for upcoming grants rounds are outlined below:

Further submission deadlines for future grants rounds will be updated in 2018.

Enquiries should be directed to externalgrants@britishlegion.org.uk
