The Charity Commission granted Soldiers League entry to the public register of charities on 16 May 2018, with a registered number of 1178408.

Soldiers League was originally founded in 2007. Its continuing aims are to be an Alumni Association for all serving or retired soldiers who have played or officiated at Rugby League within the British Army, in order to promote, foster and maintain links between the Association’s members and encourage their support for Army Rugby League representative teams and thus to use the profile of Army Rugby League to raise money for Armed Forces Charities.

Since its inception, the growth in services’ charitable needs has been reflected in the growth in fund raising activities undertaken by Soldiers League members and supporters. To ensure that independent oversight could be given to the funds raised and that donors could be confident that the appropriate probity and audit structures were in place, the Soldiers League executive committee decided to apply for charitable status, which has now been granted.

The declared object of the Soldiers League Charity is to relieve the needs of people who have served or who are serving members of the armed forces who are in need by virtue of sickness, disability or financial hardship, with a view to facilitating their rehabilitation and well-being and improving their conditions of life.
