ABF The Soldiers' Charity

In 2021 the National Garden Scheme made a donation of £60,000 to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity to support the provision of horticultural-related assistance to soldiers, veterans and their immediate families and thereby improving their health and wellbeing.

The National Garden Scheme has been supporting the charity since 2010, with a donation in 2010 and 2011, then annual donations from 2017, totalling £590,000.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the Army’s national charity, here for soldiers, past and present, and their families for life. The charity stands at the forefront of support for the Army family, last year supporting 60,000 people in 63 countries around the world. As one of the largest funders in the sector, they award grants to individuals and families, and fund leading organisations that support soldiers, former soldiers, and their families. When they hear of a person or family in need, they aim to respond within 48 hours.

In 2021, National Garden Scheme donations were used to support the following:
