Royal British Legion Scotland (Legion Scotland) is the largest ex-service membership organisation in Scotland providing support and comradeship for veterans and their families.
As Scotland's largest ex-Service membership charity, Legion Scotland works at the heart of the veteran community making a difference every day to the lives of veterans through a range of services and support.
With 140 branches, 60 clubs and over 18,000 members, Legion Scotland provides essential wellbeing and befriending services for all veterans, whether they left service yesterday or 50 years ago, as well as providing disablement pension advice, comradeship events and Remembrance services.
Currently, Legion Scotland represents around 90 per cent of veterans at the disablement pensions tribunals each year. See more information on our Pensions Service.
There are four key areas to Legion Scotland's work:
- Membership – open to all those who support our aims and objectives, by joining you help support our work as well as having access to our network of Branches and Clubs and many volunteering opportunities.
- Veterans Community Support – Providing befriending support to those living with Isolation & Loneliness in the community.
- Comradeship & Events – many opportunities are available to participate at a local and national level including (but not limited to) a full sports programme, annual Best Kept War Memorial Competition, and key military commemorations.
- Remembrance – as the custodians of Remembrance in Scotland we deliver a full programme of local and national events in November each year.
