Since 1944 ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the National Charity of the British Army, has been providing financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in need.  When a soldier leaves the Army they are still part of our family and eligible for our help. If the Regiments and Corps are the front line of Army support then we are the backbone, providing vital support to Regiments, delivery charities and the Army family.

Over the last financial year we received just under £3 million in legacies; a sum that was  invaluable in helping us support over 5,000 soldiers and their families directly via the Charity, and over 70,000 individuals via our work with partner charities. But in the future we want to do much more.  Our soldiers face many uncertain challenges; most will flourish but others will need to call on us to support them as they continue to serve, or as they transition to civilian life.   

Our eldest beneficiary was a 108 year old World War II widow needing assistance paying her care home fees. The youngest was a 5 month old baby of a serving soldier who needed funding for medical equipment.

The complexity and cost of supporting serving and retired soldiers and their dependents is rising steadily, year on year. This means we are more dependent than ever on the generosity of our supporters in order that we are not faced with making the painful choice of making essential grants to individuals and supporting delivery charities, or not.

Please contact Emma Mochan if you feel that you could help support these courageous men and women for the many years to come.
