Our branch has a team of 10 trained welfare case workers who volunteer their time for this worthy cause. From 2010 to present the team have assisted 41 ex service men and woman that have requested assistance or been referred to us. The support given ranges from hospital visits and support for their families where required, bereavement comfort to financial assistance and advice. There is a welfare table at the monthly socials where money is raised for the welfare fund and items are always gratefully received to sell there.
In cases that require urgent financial help TRBL London can assist by awarding grants and contacting previous Regiments and employers to see if other assistance can also be found. Our branch is committed to helping ex service men and woman when in need.
To contact the Central Brittany Branch Welfare Officer email our chairman Rodney Curtis.

The Royal British Legion provides financial, social and emotional support to millions who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, and their dependents. The Legion was founded in 1921 as a voice for the ex-Service community and over 600,000 members (including 15,000 outside the UK) continue to ensure that this voice does not go unheard. Although the needs of ex-Service people have changed over the years, we are still there to safeguard their welfare, interests and memory. British service people are in action around the world every day of the year. They know that if they need our support - now or in the future - the Legion is always on active duty for them
