Apply For Membership 

As an association, our beneficiaries are our Members. The circumstances in which you sustained your injury will depend on which membership category you fall into, but this does not affect the support you receive.

To complete this form you will need the following....

    • A copy of one of the following documents: Veterans ID card, Certificate of Service/War Pension or AFCS entitlement letter.
    • If you do not have this information please also fill out the Data Disclosure Authority form so Blesma can verify your service. 
    • Your NI number
    • Details of your service 
    • Your NHS number


We use this number when communicating with NHS services, such as Hospital transport or GPs and it allows us to identify you to such services securely in written communications without using patient identifying information. You should be able to find your NHS Number on any letter or document you have received from the NHS, including prescriptions, test results, and hospital referral or appointment letters. If you cannot find your NHS Number at home, you can ask your GP practice to help you.


If you do not have this please fill out the Data Disclosure Form listed at the top of this page. If we need to contact the Service records department your application may be delayed by up to 6 weeks.
