Our response to the Covid-19 outbreak

During the coronavirus outbreak the health and well-being of the people we support, our staff, members, and volunteers is, and will remain, our priority.

Our services are still available, and we are working with partners and other organisations to support communities across the UK. We have made some changes to ensure we continue to support and protect our community as best we can.

Our support is still available 

We understand that you may need our help now more than ever, and our support services are still operating with some changes. 

Support in your area

Organisations and communities across the UK are still ready to lend a helping hand. However, to best protect the Armed Forces communities, their families and our staff, we have closed our pop-in centres. To find out about support available near you, contact us on Freephone 0808 802 8080 or email [email protected] 

Specialist services 

We are always here to provide you with support and advice. If you need any support or advice related to employment or your finances, we are still here to do everything we can to help. Your physical and mental wellbeing is incredibly important to us. If are struggling in any way, please contact us on freephone 0808 802 8080 or email [email protected] to discuss your situation and what we can do to help.

Admiral Nurse service 

Our Admiral Nurse service helps you to care for members of your family who are living with a diagnosis of dementia, through a mixture of home visiting and providing support over the phone. Freephone 0808 802 8080 or email [email protected] for help looking after a loved one with dementia. 

Find support in your area with Veterans’ Gateway 

If you are a veteran that is in need of support, the Veterans’ Gateway local support tool can show you organisations close by that are ready to help. 

Ways to get in touch

The RBL Helpline remains fully operational, so if you or someone you know in the Armed Forces community needs our support, please continue to contact us on 0808 802 8080 (8am to 8pm, 7 days a week). You can also email us at [email protected].

Please note that although some of our offices are now open, there is only a limited number of staff operating in them. Therefore, post is being opened at a much slower rate. If you'd like to get in touch please contact us by email at [email protected], or by calling 0808 802 8080.

If your concern is Covid-19 related we would encourage you to contact NHS 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk/covid-19 as they will be best placed to support you.

Upcoming events
