Cobseo Membership has national reach into the service charitable sector. As the central umbrella body, it provides a focal point for all who have an interest in and/or input to, the Armed Forces Community
Cobseo, as the Confederation of Service Charities, provides a single point of contact for interaction with Government, including local government and the Devolved Administrations; with the Royal Household; with the Private Sector; and, of course, with other members of the Armed Forces Community. This allows Cobseo members to interact with all interested parties and especially to cooperate and collaborate with others in order to provide the best possible level of support to our beneficiaries.
The Stated objectives of Cobseo are to represent, promote and further the interest of the Armed Forces Community by:
- Exchanging and coordinating information internally.
- Identifying issues of common concern and coordinating any necessary and appropriate action.
- Acting as a point of contact for external agencies to the members of Cobseo.
- Representing and supporting the needs and opinions of its member organisations, individually and collectively at central & local government levels and with other national and international agencies.
Established in 1982, Cobseo became a company limited by guarantee on 7 April 2004 registered with Companies House under No 5098973.
