What we do

PAlaunch11.jpgThe Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity.

We provide practical, emotional and financial support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families.

We actively campaign to improve their lives and safeguard the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces.

We also organise the Poppy Appeal, run one of the UK's largest membership organisations and are recognised as the nation's custodian of Remembrance.

Our mission is to provide welfare, comradeship, representation and Remembrance for the Armed Forces Community.

Our services

Tyler Christopher

Whether it's families coping with the loss of a loved one, help at home to adapt to independent living, recovery centres for injured personnel, money and careers advice or residential care: we are here to help.

Millions of people in the UK and around the world are eligible to access our welfare services and we aim to help the most in need.

As the legacy of Afghanistan and Iraq combine with defence cuts, strains on public sector support and a peak in welfare demand from older veterans; the Service community is facing a perfect storm of health and welfare needs in the coming years. The Royal British Legion is here to support them.
