Youth groups and our branches

Our branches offer a unique opportunity to connect members with youth groups in local communities.

Youth groups and organisations (uniformed or otherwise) can become affiliated with any Royal British Legion branch to support fundraising projects and more. 

There’s also an opportunity to make even more of an impact by supporting multiple branches.

RBL branches are currently affiliated with 2,167 youth groups, including 1,081 Army Cadet Force Units.
