RAF Station Grants Programme

Sitting at the heart of the RAF Family we are pleased to be able to provide financial support directly to individual RAF Stations and Units to further enhance the welfare provision available to them.

Our Station Grants program supports the cost of delivering welfare facilities and activities that benefit both serving personnel and their dependents on or around RAF Stations. We encourage all members of the RAF Family to come forward with projects and initiatives that you think we should fund.

Grants can be used for larger projects such as capital works like building refurbishments through to smaller projects such as the provision of a cinema club projector. We expect all proposals to demonstrate how they meet at least one of nine Welfare Outcomes in support of the overall impact we wish our funding to have:

Application Process

Our Station Grants programme is split into three funding streams. Please ensure you have read a copy of our guidelines (PDF 103 KB) before completing the application form.

Please email completed applications to We aim to reply to applications within 8-12 weeks.

Families Days & Ben Parenting

Please note that we also provide funding for Station Families Days and BEN Play and Parenting classes. Please do not use any of the application forms above to apply for these funding streams. The Fund will write annually to Stations when these funding streams are open.
