The Royal British Legion directly helps thousands of beneficiaries every year. But we also provide funds to other organisations, manage trusts and scholarship funds and help the wider Armed Forces community in many ways. Below are just a few initiatives we support.
External Grants programme - open to applications
Applications for projects supporting the following outcome themes will be prioritised:
- Employment and training
- Family support
- Homelessness and outreach
- Supporting the elderly.
Stage One applications must be completed in the first instance, with successful applicants being invited to complete a Stage Two application. Please review the guidelines (link below) for more information.

Please note that the Legion is not inviting applications for multi-year funding at this time. Applications will only be considered for 'one off' payments. Continuation funding may be applied for in following years.
The typical grant award is not likely to exceed £50,000 – smaller applications are encouraged.
