They did not receive a grant under this programme; their primary role was to dispatch the silhouettes directly to our grant recipients.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Armed Forces Covenant Fund has £10 million per year to support Armed Forces communities and has four broad funding themes: removing barriers to family life; extra support after service for those that need help; measures to integrate military and civilian communities and allow the Armed Forces community to participate as citizens; non-core healthcare services for veterans.</p><p>The Fund is delivered by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, and Trustees decide on programme recommendations which are submitted to the cross-government Covenant Reference Group (CRG). Following approval by the CRG, these are delivered as priorities. Open and transparent criteria is published in the programme guidance documents and interested organisations apply in line with the published criteria. Applications are assessed, and expert advice may be sought where appropriate. Decisions on grants are made by the Trustees, and when funding is limited, grants are awarded to those applications which are based on a national portfolio perspective.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All exemptions from the Single Source Contract Regulations have to be personally authorised by the Secretary of State, who only does so under exceptional circumstances. Between April 2015 and March 2018, fewer than 10 contracts were exempted, valued at less than 1% of the 19.4 billion worth of single source defence contracts brought under the regime during that period. These were exempted from the regulations on a variety of grounds, including when value for money assurance could be achieved through, for example, purchasing commercially priced items.</p><p>Details of individual contracts and the numbers exempted in each year have not been provided because disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of the companies involved or the Ministry of Defence.</p> more like this
