How we work

How we work

 

Established in 1969, we ensure that Gurkha veterans, their widows and their wider communities are able to live their lives with dignity.

We achieve this primarily through the provision of financial, medical and development aid.

Our field arm operates through 21 Area Welfare Centres spread across traditional Gurkha recruiting areas in Nepal as well as one in India. We have around 400 staff working in the region.

In the UK we offer advice and support to help the thousands of retired Gurkhas and their families who choose to settle here.
