We exist to help officers find employment and to provide advice and financial support to relieve hardship amongst those who have held a commission in the Armed Forces, their families and dependants.
As the only Tri-service charity dedicated to working with the officer corps, we support serving, reservist and former officers to enable them to achieve a sustainable and fulfilling transition from military to civilian life. We proudly champion the skills and qualities of the officer job seeker to employers.
For former officers and their families, their widows/widowers and dependants, we provide advice and, where needed, financial support to ensure they are able to live with dignity and without hardship. We provide a confidential and impartial service to those who need our support.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
