The Scots Guards Charity

Our charity’s purpose is to make life better for serving soldiers, veterans and their families. We provide assistance through many means, including, supporting the wounded and families of those killed on operations, debt relief, respite breaks, mobility assistance, education, home improvement/mobility alterations and financial support. We also support soldiers between operation and the families of soldiers away on operations, as well as providing a network of support to veterans.

The Scots Guards is determined to be in a position to provide support for all members of the regimental family, now and in the future. The Scots Guards Charity is central to delivering on this commitment, but as demands on its funds increase, driven by heightened military activity, higher survival rates after serious injury, a general increase in life expectancy and higher inflation, it can only do so with your generous support.
