The Gurkha Welfare Trust is the leading Gurkha charity. We provide financial, medical and community aid to Gurkha ex-servicemen of the British Crown.
Our Gurkha Welfare Advice Centres (GWAC) in Salisbury and Aldershot have helped thousands of retired Gurkhas to successfully settle in the UK. Our teams work closely with government bodies and service charities such as SSAFA, the RBL and the ABF, who are committed to supporting Army veterans.
Managed by retired Gurkha officers, the two offices are ideally placed to impart advice and help tailored to the elderly ex-Gurkhas and widows coming to settle in the UK, who might otherwise lack the necessary language skills to access the welfare state.
Whether it be for accessing living expense grants or eligible state benefits, seeking employment or simply general advice on life in the UK, the GWACs play a vital role to help those in need.
