The Afghanistan Trust exists to help support soldiers who served with The Parachute Regiment in Afghanistan who have been wounded or killed as a Consequence, and their families.
The Trust gained charitable status in November 2007 (registered charity number 1121647) and since then has made many donations to injured soldiers including help with mobility, training and equipment for future employment; accommodation and transport costs for families to visit the wounded and for the bereaved to attend remembrance services.
