Registered Charity No: 201321 (England & Wales).
Established: 1920.
Patron: Her Majesty The Queen.

The Officers’ Association (OA) exists to help officers find employment and to provide advice and support to relieve hardship amongst those who have held a commission in the Armed Forces, their families and dependants.

We support serving, reservist and former officers to enable them to achieve a sustainable and fulfilling transition from military to civilian life. We proudly champion the skills and qualities of the officer job seeker to employers.

The OA is as relevant now in helping officers and their families as it was when formed a hundred years ago. Last year we supported over 5,500 serving and former officers from across the Armed Forces and offered advice to four times that number.

We deliver a prompt and bespoke service based on a thorough understanding of the needs of veterans, whilst aware of those struggling with injuries, both visible and invisible.

The OA is an active member of the Confederation of British Service and ex-Service Organisations (COBSEO). The charity co-operates closely on benevolence cases with a wide range of agencies and civilian charities; we also look after former British officers resident in 30 countries overseas.

Please consider the Officers’ Association and its assistance to those who have served our country, often in difficult conditions, when you advise your clients about donations and legacies.
