Most people in The UK will have heard of The Royal British Legion, but few will probably be aware of all the great work they do. To find out more visit their website, but here’s the “About us” piece which will give you a feel for the scale of this organisation’s work: The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community. We’re here through thick and thin – ensuring their unique contribution is never forgotten. We’ve been here since 1921 and we’ll be here as long as they need us.  We are the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 235,000 members, 110,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities; helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed. And this great work is underpinned by great IT.

Silversands’ work with The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion continues to support our Armed Forces community and sees IT as a means to provide even better support. We had been working with them to support a full Office 365 implementation over a period of 18 months, but when the COVID-19 crisis began we had to react quickly to keep everyone working from home. Months became weeks. Read our story here.  

Microsoft Customer Story
