ABF The Soldiers' Charity are for soldiers, for life. We provide financial assistance to all soldiers and their families when in need. Even when a soldier leaves the Army they are still part of our family and eligible for our help. The scope of our work is huge. Half of our money is given direct to individuals to help in areas such as debt relief, mobility assistance, education bursaries, carehome fees and respite breaks. The other half is given as grants to other charities.

This commitment is underlined in the Scottish Government's joint policy statement with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA), Equal Communities in a Fairer Scotland and the resulting action plan.
