ABF The Soldiers' Charity

We are the Army’s national charity, here for soldiers, veterans, and their families for life. We give life-changing grants to individuals and families in times of need, as well as providing essential funding to partner charities that deliver specialist services for Armed Forces communities on our behalf.

We have been at the forefront of support for the Army family since 1944 and are one of the largest funders in the sector. Our work spans mobility, employment, housing, mental health, families, and elderly care. When we hear of a person or family in need of help, we aim to respond with a grant within 48 hours.

Those who support us, support the whole Army family.

What we do

Charity Film 2018 | For Soldiers, For Life

I would like to thank Veterans Support UK for your commitment to raising funds on behalf of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Your generous donations will enable us to support soldiers, veterans, and their immediate families in need.

Despite the recent challenges, we have continued to provide support for members of the Army family here in the UK and around the world. In the previous financial year, we distributed over £2.6 million to over 3,000 individuals and committed in excess of £3.5m to 43 charities delivering specialist support on our behalf. For example, we awarded Combat Stress with a £250,000 grant so that they can continue supporting Army veterans with complex mental health needs through their 24-hour helpline and new video call therapy service. Similarly, our award of £400,000 to the Defence Medical Welfare Service enabled them to adjust to remote working whilst assisting Army personnel who have been admitted to hospital or other healthcare services. We continue to support members of the Army family with housing, mobility, elderly care, and education & training, and expect demand for our support to increase as we emerge from the pandemic.

It is thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we are able reach all those in need.
Thank you for your support.
Kind regards,

David Bean
