Crisis Quick Reaction Fund

Thank you so much for visiting our financial support webpages.

We’re sorry to say that we have temporarily suspended our grant-giving activities and, therefore, cannot receive further applications at the moment.

We understand the many challenges families are facing right now, and we sincerely apologise for any distress, and disappointment this notice might serve to cause.

This measure is temporary and we look forward to getting back to supporting armed forces and veteran families across Scotland as soon as possible.

Please contact and we’ll make sure that you are notified as soon as our grant-giving activities reconvene.

We work in partnership with SSAFA: The Armed Forces Charity, to deliver our family support services. Please visit their website to explore a series of alternative funds currently open for applications.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We don’t ask families to complete long application forms

We understand that the last thing families facing significant financial challenges need is a long application process. We simply need to confirm families meet our basic support criteria before asking a couple of questions to learn a little more about your request.

We accept applications from families who have children aged up to 27 years old and meet our criteria below:

  • Scottish serving or veteran families residing within the UK
  • Non-Scottish serving or veteran families residing in Scotland
