Caring for our soldiers, past and present

About the Charity

The Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Charity is registered with the Charity Commission (No 1085050). The stated object of the Charity is the relief of persons who are:


• in need, hardship or distress and

• are serving or former members of The Royal Anglian Regiment or Former Regiments and dependants of such persons.

It has made grants totalling £107,000 over the past year alone, to over 275 cases.  Cases vary from assistance to soldiers on operations in Afghanistan to helping Old Comrades and their families.  Each case is judged on its own merits.  Casework is initially handled by a Caseworker from the Soldiers, Sailors and Air Force Association (SSAFA) or The Royal British Legion, who visit the applicant and discuss their needs and background details.  The case is then sent to Regimental Headquarters where the Benevolent Committee sits in consideration.  It is aimed to turn casework around in 24 hours as the needs are invariably urgent.
