Support for the Armed Forces

Grants and personal funds

Mansfield’s Veterans Crisis Fund

This fund aims to help people who have served in our armed forces and who are now in need of help, whether through disability, sickness, old age or poverty. Small grants of up to £50 are available, all applications will ask basic details such as name, address, national insurance number, details of military service and why the application is being made.

Each case will be treated strictly on its own merits and the Veteran will have provided details of their current circumstances and provided reasonable evidence to support their claim.

Applications for funding can also be made by Cadets to help pay for training and development opportunities.

To apply please complete the following form and either email it to or return it to Housing Needs, Mansfield District Council, Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield NG19 7BH.
