Grant Funding for Reserves

The Connaught Trust provides funds to promote the military efficiency of all ranks serving in units of the Army Reserve, the Royal Naval Reserve, the Royal Marines Reserve and the Royal Air Force Reserves 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:


  • Adventure Training Expeditions

  • Improvements to Existing Facilities

  • Sports Equipment

  • Battlefield Tours

  • Training Equipment

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.
