Immediate Needs Grants Scheme

For those in urgent need

If you have financial difficulties, and don't know where to turn for help, The Royal British Legion can provide support to Service and ex-Service people and their dependants through our Immediate Needs Scheme.  Each year we help thousands of people through immediate crises by providing small hardship grants.

It's designed to help those who need assistance to get through a temporary crisis, including homelessness.  We want to be able to help Service and ex-Service people and their dependants in their time of need.

So if you, or someone you know, needs our assistance please telephone our Helpline on

0808 802 8080

This helpline is open 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. 7 days a week and is free from UK landlines and the main mobile networks.

We'd like to be able to help.
