Supporting and Protecting our Regiments

Soldiers. Casualties. Veterans. Horses. Heritage.

The Household Cavalry Foundation

The Household Cavalry Foundation (HCF) was set up in January 2013; it is the official charity for the Household Cavalry.  The HCF exists to provide charitable and pastoral support to all the members of Household Cavalry family: serving Soldiers, Operational Casualties and Veterans. The Foundation also supports the protection and development of the rich Heritage that surrounds the history of its Regiments (The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals) and the welfare of retired Horses.

The Household Cavalry is famous worldwide for both outstanding ceremonial duties and pageantry, and gallantry on the battlefield; the same soldiers seen on parade on state occasions also risk their lives for our country on the front line. All donations are used to support the Household Cavalry family welfare requirements and go directly towards our main beneficiaries.

This is important now our troops are home from operations overseas; and our thoughts turn to the future, where we need to prepare for the longterm effects of both physical and psychological injuries. We are continually astounded by the generosity and support we receive. This serves as a testament to the high regard in which all members of Household Cavalry are held. Your support is truly appreciated and all donations enable us to provide vital help to members of the wider Household Cavalry family.
