Curtis Family 715X195 Can we help?

Want to get away from it all?

Alderson House Poppy Party

The Legion offers much-needed breaks to ex-Service and serving personnel and their families.

If you or a member of your family is recovering from an illness, bereavement or other life affecting event, the Legion can provide a comfortable and enjoyable break.

We have four Break Centres located in prime locations around the country, and for our family breaks, we also have close ties with Parkdean and Haven Holiday Parks.

The Legion also provides Adventure Breaks, where young people of Service families can have a fun and activity-packed week.   

If it wasn't for the Legion we wouldn't have had a family holiday, it was lovely just to get away.
