About the ABF
ABF The Soldiers' Charity, formerly the Army Benevolent Fund is a British
registered charity. Since 1944 it has been the British Army's national charity, and
provides financial and practical support to soldiers, former soldiers,
and their families in times of need, even after they have left the Army.
The Soldiers’ Charity was founded in 1944 as The Army Benevolent Fund. The
demobilisation of soldiers after the two World Wars had put an enormous
strain on Regimental and Corps charitable funds and highlighted the need
for a national charity to give practical help to soldiers and veterans.
Its first patron was His Majesty King George VI. In January 2010, the charity
rebranded as ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and continues to support the Army
family by giving grants to individuals and other specialist charities that
help soldiers and their families. It works with veterans from every conflict
since the Second World War, including those from recent operations in Iraq
