The Royal British Legion, founded in 1921, is the UK’s leading Service charity. It provides care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families and dependents. If you have served in the Forces for at least seven days, or are the dependent of someone who has Served then the Legion’s services are available to help you. Around 9 million people in the UK are eligible for the Legion’s support and they spend nearly £1.7 million a week helping those in greatest need.
The Horsham Branch of the Legion is trying to raise awareness locally of the help they can bring to the people who need it. They have two trained Welfare Caseworkers who will be glad to talk you through the procedure for making a claim and explain further the type of help the Legion can give. If you, or someone you know, are struggling to make ends meet we can help you in all sorts of ways. You can call the Sussex County Office for advice on 01444 441470 or contact the local Horsham Branch direct by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org giving a contact telephone number if possible, to find out more.
