MEMBER INFORMATION

As a member of The Royal British Legion you are part of a network of like-minded people who care about our Armed Forces personnel, past and present.

Membership renewals

We’ve introduced online renewals to ensure you can pay your annual membership in the way that best suits you. 10,000 new members have joined the Legion and 215,000 members have renewed since we launched our new payment system last year.

If your renewal was due on 1 October 2015, your membership card will expire on 31 March 2016 and the quickest way to make your renewal payment is online.

Use our Membership self service to complete your payment, to change your payment method or to update your personal details (eg change of address). Once your payment has been processed and accepted, your new membership card will arrive by post. More information about the process is available here.

Womens' Section

Proposals were set out earlier this year by The Royal British Legion Board of Trustees to integrate the Legion Women’s Section into the main body of the organisation. After considering feedback from the 2016 Annual Conferences of both the Women’s Section and the Legion membership, the Trustees agreed that it remains vitally important to integrate the Women’s Section into the Legion to comply with charity regulation and governance arrangements.

Following discussions in June 2016, and with the support of the Women’s Section Central Committee, a joint team representing the Legion and the Women’s Section is being formed to develop a plan for integration.

The team will work together to identify potential issues brought about by the change, and the aim will be to complete the integration of the Women’s Section by 1 October 2017.

Updates on progress will be shared throughout the process.
