AOA      

Welcome to the Army of Angels Official website

Army of Angels is a UK Military Charity that provides direct and indirect support to members of the UK's armed forces who have been injured, physically or mentally, while serving their country in conflicts around the world. We also support their families and co-dependents.

The charity supports all services and all ranks of those who have fought for their country including veterans of the wars in Europe, the Far East, the Falklands and the Gulf.

Soon the Armed Forces will be withdrawing from the current conflict in Afghanistan but for some the battle will continue for years to come. Please support the Army Of Angels so that we can continue to support our wounded service men and women.
