ABF The Soldiers’  Charity

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

Our vision is that all soldiers, veterans and their immediate families should have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence and dignity. We support the entire British Army community from wounded, injured and sick soldiers, those who are going through financial hardships and those struggling to integrate back into civilian life.

Facts about our job

  • We are the national Charity of the British Army
  • In 2017/2018 we reached over 70,000 individuals through our charitable activities
  • We are there for soldiers, veterans and their families for life. Last year our eldest beneficiary was 106 years old, and our youngest just 2 years old.

We give a lifetime of support to soldiers and former soldiers from the British Army, and their immediate families when they are in need. We make grants to individuals through their Regiments and Corps and support a wide range of specialist charities that sustain the Army family, both at home and around the world. We are here to safeguard the well-being of those who are struggling to maintain their independence and quality of life.

The scope of our work is vast, from ensuring a currently serving soldier suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has the support they need to begin the recovery process, to adapting an elderly veteran’s bathroom enabling them to stay in their own home, to providing essential groceries and clothing to a young struggling family.

We take pride in being responsive and making a difference at a critical point in peoples’ lives. We have been doing this since 1944, working with veterans of every conflict, and we aim to be here for the ‘long haul’ – supporting all future generations of our soldiers and their dependants.
