What we do
The aims of the Association have remained much the same as they were when it was formed in 1920: to provide leisure and recreation for the benefit of serving and ex-service personnel who are wounded or have sustained permanent injuries.
More recently, the involvement of our Armed Forces in places such as Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan has highlighted the dangers of operational service and the continued need for our work.
We take great care to ensure that our unique and varied programme of support and entertainment remains relevant and appealing to all our service men and women, both those who have served in recent conflicts and veterans of previous wars.
The Association offers leisure, recreational, sporting and adventure activities which many of us often take for granted. However, for the thousands of injured and wounded serving and ex-service men and women, many of who are lonely and vulnerable, our support can bring genuine happiness, a much needed boost and something to which they can look forward.
Our servicemen and women make gallant sacrifices defending our nation’s interests and the freedom of others. When they are injured in the course of their duty, they really do deserve our support to ensure that they are not forgotten.
If you think that you, or someone you know, may be eligible for our help please contact us, or your military association or service benevolent charity.
