Geographical remit: 
National - Britain


We support serving members of the Armed Forces who are wounded, injured or sick and any veteran, of any age, with a disability, illness or infirmity; whatever the cause and whenever it arose.

Any current or former member of The Royal Navy, The Royal Marines, The British Army, The Royal Air Force and The Merchant Navy, both Regular and Reserve Forces, may be eligible for our help.

We provide entertainment, leisure and recreation in the form of outings, holidays, concerts, royal events and the provision of televisions and TV Licences.

Some of our activities provide a physical challenge and the opportunity to develop self-confidence, others are of a more social nature aimed at fostering camaraderie between like-minded people who understand each other’s experiences and have a similar sense of humour; many will offer both challenge and comradeship. All are intended to enhance wellbeing, restore confidence, boost morale and provide happiness, giving people something to which they can look forward. 


Each year we assist approximately10,000 individuals across the UK. Activities are carefully tailored to the individual needs of beneficiaries of different ages, service experiences, personal circumstances and degree of physical or mental injury or disability. In providing this unique specialist service to the tri-service community our aim is to complement the work of other service charities.
