Troop Aid was founded in November 2006 by three ex servicemen as a result of a visit to Selly Oak Hospital’s Alexandra Wing in Birmingham. This was the home of the Defence Medical Welfare Services who are responsible for the welfare of all Armed Forces Personnel, male and female who were injured during the conflict in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
Troop Aid understands that everyone who joins the Armed Forces may one day go to war and fight for their country. At the Queen Elizabeth Hospital injured servicemen and women receive the very best medical care.
Our funds come entirely from fund raising events and donations from organisations such as Rotary International, Lions International, Masonic Lodges, Round Table, Primary and Secondary Schools, ex Service Associations, the local business community, the general public and several British expatriate communities overseas. We will continue to help our troops returning from conflicts for as long as necessary. Troop Aid speakers are happy to visit any groups and organisation to talk about the work they do.
