The Royal British Legion Working in Cumbria

Charity Number 219279


The Royal British Legion is one of the UK’s best known and highly respected charities.  Its principal concern is the welfare of Serving and ex-Service people and their dependants, with around 10.5 million people in the UK eligible for that support.  That’s one in six people in the UK.


We can offer financial aid in an urgent crisis, or help homeless ex-Service people back on their feet.  We advise people on compensation, disablement and pension claims.  We also offer careers advice and can help those looking to make a fresh start after leaving the forces.  A few of the examples of the items provided by the Legion include:


  • Essential household goods,
  • Help with debt and access to debt counselling,
  • Mobility aids including electrically-powered vehicles
  • Training
  • Assistance with the application for stair lifts and level access showers



The Legion is about people and families of all ages; it’s about caring for others and being part of something special.  It’s an organisation of members that both care and are cared for, giving and receiving support depending on their individual circumstances.
