Grant Funding 
for Reserve & Cadet Forces

Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and the adjoining counties of Wiltshire, Dorset, Surrey, West Sussex and Berkshire.

The Connaught Trust has funds available to promote military efficiency within the Cadet and Reserve forces in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and adjoining counties. 
 We welcome grant applications at any time throughout the year and you can apply as many times as you wish, whether you have received a grant from us before or not.  If you are considering making an application and would like some feedback before you submit, please do get in touch and we will be happy to chat with you.

For details of our Grant Giving Policy, and to find out if your unit is eligible to be considered for a grant, please click here.  We encourage you to make use of other funding opportunities alongside funding from The Connaught Trust, and are keen to co-fund exercises and activities with organisations such as The Ulysees Trust.

Applying is easy with our online form.  You can save the form at any time, send it via email for authorisation or further input, and submit it to us when you're ready to do so.

We look forward to receiving your application soon!
