We are a membership organisation for women which provides care and support to the Serving and ex-Service community.
Nationally for over 90 years, our specially tailored welfare schemes have helped thousands of men, women and children within the Armed Forces community, who are in financial hardship or in need of extra support.
We are also one of the largest female membership organisations in existence with over 30,000 members and 750 branches across the British Isles and overseas. Our members play a key role in the organisation by fundraising throughout the year within our local branches and counties to finance the bulk of the welfare schemes. It’s only with this on-going support and generosity that we can continue to deliver our support services to those in need.
In addition, we also support the Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal from mid-October to mid-November with all fundraising going directly to The Poppy Appeal rather than The Women’s Section welfare schemes.
