We support charitable activities of units of the Army Cadet Force, the Sea Cadet Corps, the Air Training Corps, the Volunteer Cadet Corps, the Combined Cadet Force throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and, in so far as funding being available, across surrounding counties.

What can we apply for?

Our grant funding can help with activities and equipment such as:


  • Summer Camps

  • Sports Equipment

  • Transport Facilities

  • Training Equipment

  • Adventure Training Expeditions

If you have a requirement for funding, we're happy to chat with you informally to establish if this is something you could apply for from The Connaught Trust.
