ABF The Soldiers' Charity
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity (formally The Army Benevolent Fund, founded in 1944) exists to support the men and women who have put everything on the line to defend us and our country. For 70 years, we have given a lifetime of support to serving soldiers, veterans, and their families when they have faced severe financial hardship or crisis. We help regardless of age, circumstance or rank.
As the Army’s National Charity, we are one of the leading grant makers for soldiers and ex-soldiers, providing 6,000 financial grants, and over £2.9 million to other specialist military charities each year. We are the backbone of support to the Army family. The scope of our work is huge, supporting those with physical and mental injuries, supporting veterans in their later years, relieving hardship when times get tough and enabling soldiers make a success of their lives outside the Army.
Soldiers risk their lives for us, so please help us to be there for serving and former soldiers, and their families in their hour of need.

Coaching for Hope
"To use football to empower youth, women and disabled people in developing countries"
Coaching for Hope trains local coaches across Africa in football coaching skills and HIV education as well as other life skills. These coaches are then developed so that they can in turn coach more people. Each coach is working with groups of vulnerable young people in orphanages, schools and community associations.
Our curriculum uses football related games to communicate health education messages and covers sexual health and substance abuse as well as wider life skills. We are now developing a new curriculum to ensure that local coaches are encouraged to include disabled children who are so often excluded from sports and play.
We harness the power of football to unlock potential and engage communities in vital awareness raising activities and partner with a number of Football League clubs as well as the FA, PFA, adidas and other sponsors.

Help for Heroes

The message of the charity is simple: We are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. We believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life.
