Our support starts after seven days of service and continues through life, long after service is over.
We hope the information below helps to answer any questions but, if for any reason you’re unsure about whether the Legion can help you, please contact our friendly helpline team on 0808 802 8080.
We’re dedicated to supporting not only serving and ex-serving personnel but the whole of the Armed Forces community, including dependants and carers. This includes:
We can also provide support for Commonwealth citizens who are residents in the UK as well as past and present members of the Brigade of Gurkhas and their families. Find out more about eligibility online.
There is also a range of support available through the Legion’s Women’s Section.
Dependants can include children, spouses and partners, including widows or widowers. Other dependants also include relatives, those living with serving or ex-serving personnel or those dependent on them.
Carers are those who have an ongoing caring responsibility for someone in the Armed Forces community.
The Royal British Legion has 96 branches outside the United Kingdom. Just because you aren't based in the UK doesn't mean we can’t help you. You can use our website to search for overseas branches and find one near you.
