Why join us?

Belong. Join our network, build relationships and share great experiences with like-minded people in one of our local or national branches.

Support. Membership is an excellent way to get involved in all that the Legion does. As a member you can, for example, provide support through our Branch Community Support programme, reaching out to those in need near you. Through Membership, you can help others and feel good about it!

Do. Whether it’s fundraising, helping out at Remembrance events or getting involved with our welfare support - members contribute to making sure that we are able to deliver services for our beneficiaries.

Membership is from £17 a year. As part of your membership you will also receive:

  • An annual membership card

Please visit the Membership Terms and Conditions for further information about our membership offer and services.

Why I'm a Member - Sylvia Hemingway

"My husband and I are members of The Royal British Legion and I work on the welfare side because of my previous experience as a nurse. I absolutely love it. You don’t have to be part of the Armed Forces community to join, everyone is welcome. My husband is now chairman of our branch, so the Legion forms quite a large part of our lives but we love trying to raise the profile of the Legion.”

Why I'm a Member - Ellie Parke

"I love being a member of The Royal British Legion. I have had the chance to meet people from all over the UK, and become part of the Legion family and make friends. I have grown up with the Legion being a big aspect of my life, and I am glad to be a member.”
