New directory is quite ‘handy’

The go-to guide on Service charities
 COBSEO, The Confederation of Service Charities has just published its 2011 directory or ‘handbook’ of Members.

COBSEO currently comprises some 180 member organisations ranging from the larger charities such as The Royal British Legion, SSAFA FH, Seafarers UK, ABF-The Soldiers Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund, through the medium sized charities including St Dunstan’s’, BLESMA, Combat Stress, Help for Heroes, Forces Pension Society, Officers’ Association, Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Royal Air Force Association to smaller charities and Regimental Associations.

The book contains details of around 180 organisations
 It’s a handy size that can easily fit in your briefcase or bag, so you can always have it to hand when you need details of organisations that support the Armed Forces Community.

The handbook been designed to be an easy and complete reference identifying COBSEO’s member organisations, contact details and scope of operation. It tells you what each member organisation does and the specific needs they cater for, in a clear page-per-organisation way. It is designed as a go-to guide and reference book.

The online version of the handbook can be found here and there is a web-based search engine which enables users to easily search and access the handbook, using keywords or phrases. So if you were looking for help with housing, the search engine can provide those member service charities which could provide that specific help, it’s that simple to use.

If you want further information, or a copy of the handbook (£5 each to cover production costs, including postage and packaging) then call Sophie Lucas on 0845 504 6633 or email
