Army Dependants' Trust

The Army Dependants’ Trust is a charity which provides discretionary cash grants to dependants of servicemen and servicewomen who die in service, from whatever cause.

For a small annual donation, the Trust relieves any financial hardship for the member’s family/dependants in the immediate period following their loss. The recipients of the awards need take no action themselves to claim as the charity does everything.

Historically, the Trust has paid out over £1m every year.
