Whether you are a beneficiary, member or supporter, the aim of The Royal British Legion is to make advice and support services easy to access. Their contact centre (0808 802 8080) is open 8am – 8pm, 7 days a week, there is an online knowledge base (www.rbl.org.uk) and city Pop In centres. Starting this month in Northumberland the Legion is also trialling local drop-in sessions. These sessions are open to anyone and everyone who may have an Armed Forces query, whether it be financial, care or employment or just general queries such as local events.
The drop-in sessions will cover 4 key areas (Berwick, Alnwick, Blyth and Hexham), trying to reach as many people as possible. The sessions will run once a month in each location between 11am – 1pm. As these sessions are only for a trial period, the Legion would be grateful if local organisations could display one of the posters to promote the service to help get the word out that they are happening.
