Community & Support News

Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community through thick and thin – ensuring your unique contribution is never forgotten. They have been around since 1921 and will be there as long you need them.

Supporting the Armed Forces community through life

The Legion supports serving members of all three Services as well as reservists, veterans and their families. Their support starts after 7 days of service and continues for life. They help veterans of all ages transition into civilian life, helping with employment, financial issues, respite and recovery, through to lifelong care and independent living. From rehabilitation courses, to tailored personal support for recovery, homelessness and financial advice – they are by your side, every step of the way. Every year the Legion takes thousands of serving and ex-Service families on breaks, so they can spend some much needed quality time together. They also support older veterans with home adaptations, nursing services and through six dedicated care homes, run just for ex-Service men and women and their partners.
