3 I would like to invite the charity to attend an event/ hold a stall at an event.

Please reach out to the regional team nearest you, we are always looking to meet the local community and fundraise at new events. Find your local office here!

4 I need assistance and would like to apply for a grant, how do I find out more?

We provide grants to members and former members of the British Regular Army who have normally completed adult basic training and their dependant spouses/civil partners, widows, widowers, children and other immediate dependants. We provide individual grants to support those in need and grants to charities which deliver support on behalf of the Army and ourselves. Please take a look at our grants page here, which explains the type of grants we provide and how to apply.

5 I need help finding participant for my study/ I would like to promote my charity/ company to your beneficiaries.

We are purely a grant-making charity, supporting veterans and their families who have served in the Corps and Regiments of the British Army. We are not a membership organisation and do not give out personal details so I’m afraid are not able to help you find participants for your program/ study or promote your service/ organisation.
