ABF, formerly the Army Benevolent Fund, is the national charity of the British Army. Since 1944, it has provided a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families when they are in need.
ABF stands at the forefront of support for the Army family, last year supporting 60,000 people in 63 countries around the world. As one of the largest funders in the sector, they award grants to individuals and families, and fund leading charities that support soldiers, former soldiers, and their families.
ABF offers support in six key areas: independent living, mental health, elderly care, education and employability, families and housing.
Mental health is a key area of their work. ABF provides far-reaching financial assistance to charities and organisations that tackle mental illness amongst the Army family – from substance dependency, to managing the symptoms of depression and PTSD.
The Scots Guards Charity has a vision that all Scots Guards soldiers, veterans and their families should have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence with dignity. It provides immediate, critical and often life-changing support to those in need and their families, serving or retired.
The Scots guards charity provides assistance through many means, including (but not exclusive to) debt relief, respite breaks, mobility assistance, education, home improvement/mobility alterations and financial support.
The team appreciates all of the support they’ve received so far, and we want to have you along for the ride as we embark on this life-changing and challenging journey. Please assist us in spreading the word about our cause.
