Royal British Legion Service Delivery Grants

The External Grants programme is provided by the Royal British Legion and can support charities and community groups that aim to safeguard the welfare of people who have served in the Armed Forces.

Grants are provided to organisations from England, Wales and Northern Ireland that share one or more of the following Royal British Legion objectives:

  • To relieve need and further the education of ex-Service personnel and their spouses, children and dependants.
  • To relieve need and protect the mental and emotional health of families left by those who have died in the Armed Forces.
  • To relieve suffering, hardship and distress to families caused by the absence of those serving in the Armed Forces.
  • To promote and support schemes that aim for the resettlement, rehabilitation, retraining and employment of ex-Service personnel and their families.

To apply for Service Delivery grants, charitable organisations that have been operating for at least two years can apply.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be based in England, Wales, or Northern Ireland.
  • Have a project that will directly benefit ex-Service personnel and/or their families.
  • Have attempted to secure funding from other sources (whether successfully or not).
  • Prove their organisation is run efficiently.
