Welcome to the Armed Forces Health Partnership programme, a joint venture between The Royal British Legion, a UK leading charity providing help and welfare to the Serving and ex-serving community, and Combat Stress, the UK's leading military charity specialising in veterans' mental health.

Working together, supported by funding from the Department of Health's Voluntary Sector Strategic Partnership Programme, we aim to to build knowledge amongst clinicians and service providers on the health effects of Service in the Armed Forces and promote veteran pathways to treatment and support.

We are creating a community of views and resources to support a better understanding of Armed Forces and veterans health, mental health and social care needs. Here your views can be heard and presented to the Department of Health and important policy makers.
