Charity registered in Scotland SC046571

Many armed forces charities struggle to raise sufficient funding to support serving and former members of the British Armed Forces’ and sometimes their dependants who are in need. The Veterans' Foundation has been created to establish a new and nationwide source of funding to help these charities. It acquires its funds through the Veterans’ Lottery and donations. The trustees of the Veterans' Foundation will disburse funds to Armed Forces charities and charitable activities.
