Charities team up to give financial advice to service veterans
The Royal British Legion, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and Citizens Advice have joined forces to provide financial advice for current and former armed forces personnel and their families.
Harvey Tilley, head of community services at the Royal British Legion, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to use our pooled resources and experience to reach more people.”
The three-year partnership is due to be launched this month in 18 citizens advice bureaux in England and Wales. There are plans to expand this by at least two more in 2008 if the initial posts are successful.
Ernie Bohm, director of policy and plans at the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, said: “It is imperative that charities work together, pooling our resources and expertise to provide the best possible services to those who have served their country.”
