From 7th April, The Royal British Legion will be offering a support service in Northfield for Armed Forces (past and present), their families and carers.
Nationally the Legion carries out vital welfare work, providing social, emotional and financial care and support to people with a military connection. And these fortnightly drop-in sessions will provide a local face-to-face point of contact for those in need of help and advice from the Legion:
- Having trouble making ends meet?
- Need help with an immediate crisis?
- Looking for work or to start your own business?
- Need a break from the strains of everyday life?
- Injured by service in the Armed Forces?
- Struggling to do the little jobs around the house because of your age or a disability?
- Thinking of moving into a home with care?
- Need advice on military inquests?
The Legion’s support service will be available from the Visit Northfield Shop, 693 Bristol Road South, Northfield, B31 2JT between 10am – 3pm on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, starting on 7th April.
If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible, simply drop into one of the sessions or call their national helpline (number below).
As the nation’s leading Armed Forces charity, The Royal British Legion recognises the demographics and needs of their beneficiaries are changing and access points such as this, together with their revamped website www.britishlegion.org.uk and national helpline number 0808 802 8080, will make it easier than ever before to contact the Legion to ask for help.
