After Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day our service personnel, both serving, retired and wounded are at the forefront of our thoughts ....... but for 11 months of the year life can be a struggle for many, as they battle with changes in their lifestyle, living in civvy street, very often over-shadowed by the terrible memories or injuries from conflict.
The Royal British Legion supports charities and community groups that aim to safeguard and improve the welfare of people who have served in the Armed Forces. Grants are available to organisations that share one or more of the Royal British Legion objectives.
Grants up to £50,000 are available. Significantly lower grants are, however, likely to be awarded. So if you know a group that supports ex service staff and they share at least one of the RBL’s state aims they could be eligble for a grant.
Applicants must submit evidence that they have attempted to secure funding from other sources (whether successfully or not) and can demonstrate that their organisation is run efficiently.
