Youth Membership

What is Youth Membership and who is it for?

The RBLWS Youth Branch is a National Holding Branch, called the National Youth Holding Branch, which will be administered by Head Office. Local Branches are responsible for enlisting and registering members.

Joining as a Youth Member provides a fantastic opportunity for girls aged of 12 to 15, with aspirations of joining the Royal British Legion Women’s Section on turning 16 years of age, to participate in supervised Women’s Section activities.  

What you’ll get as a Youth Member

As a Youth Member, you will receive a Women’s Section Youth Membership badge and a membership card, however the card does NOT carry any right of access to an RBL Club.

As an accompanied Youth Member, you will have the opportunity to attend our Annual Conference and also the chance to apply for tickets for the Festival of Remembrance in accordance with instructions given by Head Office.

Parental/guardian responsibility is fundamental in relation to participation in Women’s Section activities at any level, and contact with Youth Members will be solely through the mother or guardian of the member.

Membership Fee

Youth Membership is free! If your application is accepted, you will belong to the National Youth Holding Branch until the age of 16, when you will be transferred automatically to membership of your local Branch unless we are instructed otherwise.

Interested in joining?

Great! Please ask your mother/guardian (who must be a Women's Section member) to sign you up - there's two ways they can do it:

  1. Online: Go to Become a Member, select the tab for Youth Membership and complete our online membership application form.
  2. Via Post: Print and complete the Youth Membership Application Form and return it to the freepost address listed on the form. If you don't have access to a printer, you can request a form by using our contact us form.

Once we receive your application, we’ll send you a joining pack. This includes your membership card, a welcome letter, your membership badge and a copy of our latest 'Circular' magazine.
