The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion near you

The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity, spending over £1.6 million per week on providing practical, emotional and financial support to the serving and ex service members of the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families, which includes debt advice, war pension advice and employment advice. 

We also offer much-needed breaks for serving and ex-service personnel and their families and have six Care Homes, each providing long-term nursing and personal care.  Four of our homes also provide dedicated dementia care.                               

In order to meet the changing and ever growing needs of the serving and ex-service communities, the Legion is reaching out into the local areas and has established a number of Outreach centers across the County, notably in the libraries at Leominster and Ross on Wye, and at the Franklin House in Hereford, where a trained adviser will be on hand to offer advice, signposting and information about the many services that The Royal British Legion can offer. 

Our aim is to make our advice and support services easier to access and more relevant to everyone – beneficiaries in particular.

Whether you are a beneficiary, a member or supporter, you can access our services Nationally and find out the locations and opening times of our outreaches in one of three key ways:
