Troop Aid

Troop Aid is a small charity with a world wide reach based in Solihull, West Midlands. The concept of supplying injured or sick service personnel with an emergency pack when they are admitted to a military hospital unit without their personal effects was the brainchild of retired Captain Albert Sutton and two other ex servicemen.  In November 2006 they were  prompted into action when they found out that the walking wounded were arriving off the planes at Birmingham Airport wearing  only a blanket and boxer shorts.  The objective Troop Aid  was then as still is to this day to support injured and sick members of the Armed Forces by giving them a Grab Bag (emergency pack) on arrival at a medical unit.   The bags contain toiletries , clothing and footwear and are supplied gender neutral.   Currently our packs are being delivered to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham  plus all Defence Primary Healthcare units within the United Kingdom. British troops are serving in many countries around the world both on Operations and Training,  Troop Aid makes sure that they too have access to our support.  In recognition of their work Troop Aid was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary service in 2014, also in 2014 Troop Aid received the Chief of the Defence  Staff’s commendation for exceptional service to the military community.  His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has been our Patron since 2008.  Troop Aid has four Trustees, two paid staff and numerous volunteers who help to  pack the bags on a regular basis.
