The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion has been supporting members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, veterans and their families since 1921.

The Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community through thick and thin. Support starts after seven days of service and continues through life, long after service is over. 

If there is ever a reason the Legion can’t help, its vast network means it will know someone who can.

The Royal British Legion know that the needs of the Armed Forces community are complex, so partner charities and organisations can help offer advice and support on everything from PTSD to housing.
