Legion in the Community

The Royal British Legion plays a pivatol role in local communities across Great Britain, and we rely up on the help of our members to carry this out. There are many ways that people can become involved in various aspects of Royal British Legion life, such as through involvement with welfare and the Poppy Appeal.

It is essential that all our community work is tailored to be inclusive and responsive to the needs of the serving and ex-Service community, along with their dependents. Public awareness is a vital feature of Royal British Legion work, as this helps to develop the publics' understand of the multi-faceted role, the RBL plays in supporting people.  At present our members participate in a variety of events which does include: 

  • Local Fetes/Fairs
  • Open Evenings
  • Concerts
  • Armed Forces Day
  • Community Carnivals, Military Air Shows & Open Days.

If you have an event planned then let our County HQ know about it! The 'Legion in the Community' (LIC) scheme is a perfect opportunity to publicise your Royal British Legion event and to encourage others from within Greater Manchester to take a more active role.
