Do you need help?
Applications for financial assistance should be addressed to the SSAFA Forces Help Branch/Division nearest to the applicants home. To find your nearest SSAFA Forces Help office visit at www.ssafa.org.uk/ and for all other assistance and any inquiries contact HHQ.
If you are in difficulty the nearest SSAFA or Royal British Legion office, or Department of Social Security Office will assist. A representative (Caseworker) probably from SSAFA will make contact and will meet the applicant to determine the facts relating to the application for assistance. A written report will then be submitted to the Regimental Secretary for consideration. Once the case has been considered the decision will be referred back to the relevant SSAFA Forces Help Branch, who will be advised on any grant awarded and how the grant is to be used. Grants will not be paid directly to the applicant.

Benevolence and Welfare. Last financial year the Regimental charitable funds awarded grants in excess of £32,500 and assisted 36 individuals from across KRH, the former Regiments and families.
Our Regimental charitable funds provide fast and effective help to those in need. Funds are administered by HHQ, who work very closely with other Service charities such as The Army Benevolent Fund, SSAFA, The Royal British Legion and many others. We also rely heavily on the teams of local SSAFA and RBL branch volunteer caseworkers.
KRH benevolence is delivered by two charitable funds, the Regimental Welfare Fund and the Charles Benjamin Wilson Bequest (CB Wilson).
The Regimental Welfare Fund. The Welfare Fund is a part of the Regimental Trust and income is derived from a combination of Regimental investments, Day's Pay contributions of serving officers and soldiers, and donations from old comrades and other charitable bodies.
The Charles Benjamin Wilson Bequest. The CB Wilson Fund has its own Trustees and also supports officers, soldiers and families of The King's Royal Hussars and the former Regiments. Its income is derived from the legacy of Captain C B Wilson, a former 10th Hussar officer, who left a bequest in memory of his only son, Johnny, who was killed in the Western Desert in 1942.
The Welfare Fund needs your help to continue providing this crucial support. You can assist by donating as follows:
