ARMY BENEVOLENT FUND
ABF is The Soldiers’ Charity. Never ending support for our soldiers since 1944.
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity gives lifetime support to serving and retired soldiers and their families. They risk so much for us, but for them, it’s just doing their job. In return, the charity provides financial and vocational assistance when they are in real need. That’s what the charity has been here to offer for 70 years.
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is for soldiers, for life. They provide financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in genuine need. Even when a soldier leaves the Army they are still part of our family and eligible help. The scope of the charity’s work is huge. Two-thirds of money is given direct to individuals to help in areas such as post-injury assistance, vocational support, mobility assistance, education bursaries, care home fees and respite breaks. The other third is given as grants to other charities who support the Army family.
As a Veteran having served in the Royal Artillery, Alan has had several friends and colleagues injured on operations and has seen at first hand the support provided by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.
