As we all get older some may need welfare assistance from (or want relatives
to know how to reach) the organisations* that we all supported during our service:

The first point of contact for veterans seeking support: The Veterans Gateway
put veterans and their families in touch with the organisations best placed to help
with the information, advice and support they need – from healthcare and housing
to employability, pensions, gratuities, finances, personal relationships, bereavements and more.  

https://www.veteransgateway.org.uk/    a Gov hosted site in Wales

In addition this page (scroll down) provides links to primary Forces Welfare Organisations:

*Army Benevolent Fund (and RAF/Royal Navy equivalents)
Army Regimental Funds
Single Solders' Dependants Fund
Soldier's Widows Fund
Royal British Legion
SSAFA

Welfare of British Veterans in Germany (British Army Germany former BAOR)

I live in Germany.  A recent enquiry from an old soldier in UK regarding an older soldier in Germany,
really needed the support / intervention / assistance of the Royal British Legion (RBL).   The RBL
is alive and well in the former British Zone and Berlin.

The contacts list below has been compiled following a trawl on the Internet, but will serve to
jump start anyone needing welfare advice from a reputable source.
(I haven't been paid by the RBL to say this!).  

They do need members/fresh blood and anyone interested should contact
the membership secretary (Robert Millar - ex 12 Regt RA  at Paderborn-Sennelager  
Paderborn.memsecretary@rbl.community)

All quotes from various RBL Sites;

>>The Royal British Legion is here to help members of the Royal Navy, British Army,
Royal Air Force, veterans and their families. And we’re not going anywhere.  We support
serving and ex-serving personnel all year round, every day of the week.

Our support starts after one day of service and continues through life, long after
service is over.
