The Legion on the high street

Pop In Centres are the Legion's new High Street presence. Each centre offers a welcoming space for Service personnel, veterans and their families to get practical help and advice. You will also find representatives from Combat Stress and RFEA in some of the centres to help with your questions or needs.

Members of the public can find out about the wide range of services and community activities provided by the Legion.

Visitors to Pop In Centres can support the Legion by purchasing items from the Poppy Shop directly within the Centre. A wide selection of products from the Poppy Shop are available, including jewellery, home & gifts, collection pieces and seasonal products. You will be able to pick up your items right away avoiding online delivery charges.

A new community outreach service in the form of 'Drop-in centres' is available in areas where there is known demand. You can find these at local meeting points such as libraries, Legion branches or community centres at certain times of the week. Call our freephone number or use our Legion location finder to find the one nearest to you.
