The British Embassy Kyiv is accepting project proposals for the 2022 to 2023 financial year (April 2022 to March 2023) from not-for-profit organisations under the Conflict, Security and Stability Fund Programme.
In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the UK is seeking to provide support to the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine (U-MOD) to help those who have served and are suffering from conflict-related trauma (psychological and physical).
The invasion of Ukraine’s sovereign territory by the Russian Federation led to a substantial increase in the number of those serving their country in combat and combat-support roles. This has led to greater pressure on the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) specifically to support an increased number of troops, including those with limited military connections, backgrounds, and experience. The Special Defence Advisory Team is looking for a partner who can lead on the delivery of the following four objectives to:
assist with the development of U-MOD’s internal policies to ensure it delivers best-practice support for psycho-social trauma and trauma risk management; including recognising the specific needs of vulnerable groups (women and minorities)
assist with the development of psycho-social trauma monitoring, lessons-learning, and support reach-back
undertake a gaps analysis of psycho-social trauma within the AFU. Engage with UK military trauma support specialist to assist with the development of a package to improve the process in place and fill any gaps in support (through advice, facilitation, or direct delivery of needs, as required)
undertake, in consultation with the AFU, a needs analysis of the provision on Ukrainian conflict-related trauma surgery. If required, work with the UK’s Royal Centre for Defence Medicine in the adaptation and delivery of their remote trauma surgery training package
Recommendations and requirements to project budgets are listed on tab 1 of CSSF Activity Based Budget template and guidance (ODS, 18.1 KB).
We are unable to fund academic courses or research, English language tuition; the purchase of land, property, IT or other equipment (clarification is provided below) and finance construction works under this Fund.

The deadline to submit project proposals is 11:55pm (GMT) on Wednesday 08 June 2022. Late proposals will not be considered.
