The League Of Remembrance

We support elderly Armed Forces veterans, their widows, and retired nurses, who are vulnerable, in need, hardship or distress, by helping them to find a new purpose in life following retirement, bereavement or illness. We provide this through a volunteering programme, an initiative based on the principle of ‘helping people, to help themselves, by helping others’, and we currently have 51 of our Remembrance Workers doing this by delivering volunteer services at 11 hospitals, mainly in London.

Founded 1915
