The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.

Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support for those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.

Legion membership ensures that:

  • Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
  • The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
  • Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.

About The Royal British Legion:

We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces – past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.

Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.

If  you know of an ex service person or their family who need help do contact us.

Our local case officers provide general and crisis support.  Regional specialist advisers help serving personnel and veterans seeking career and vocational advice and assist with War Pension Appeals and Armed Forces compensation claims. We also help people seeking money, benefits and debt advice; provide legal advice for inquests and help the carers of veterans (or their dependants) with dementia who are living at home.

The Royal British Legion helpline:  0808 802 8080

Only through remembrance, comradeship and leading through example will their sacrifice be honoured.
