Volunteers - we need you!

Volunteer for the Legion


There are many ways you can help as a volunteer, for only a couple of hours a week, or more if you have time:

Or you could go one step further by becoming a Legion member and participating in membership activities through your local branch.


Why we need your time

Do something amazingThe Royal British Legion's support services have never been needed more and increasingly, the support we give is to the Afghan generation of the Armed Forces family - today and for the rest of their lives.

Volunteering your time ensures we carry on supporting those who need us. Whether you help fundraise, or deliver services to those who need them, your time, commitment and enthusiasm are highly valuable to us.

Benefits of volunteering for us

Volunteering with the Legion gives you the opportunity to develop and learn new skills, enhance your CV, make new friends and have an enjoyable and rewarding experience at the same time.

You'll gain experience of how a large, successful international charity works, and if you're volunteering for the Poppy Appeal you'll be part of the largest and most successful fundraising campaign in Europe.

You'll meet hugely inspiring supporters, other volunteers and Armed Forces heroes and will help to make a lasting difference to people's lives.

For each volunteer role you can expect an induction, role-specific training and ongoing support. We'll reimburse your 'out-of-pocket' expenses within agreed guidelines too.
