SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity
In recognition of their service to the nation, SSAFA has spent more than 136 years providing critical, face-to-face guidance and support to servicemen and women, veterans and their families in the UK and on military bases around the world to help them in their time in need.
SSAFA provide lifelong support that could be accessed when serving, transitioning to ‘civvy street’ or later in life. Some of the most common areas of need the charity see is mental health, isolation, relationship breakdown and help with food and housing.
Services are tailored to the diverse needs of modern users, and support covers both regulars and reserves in the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the British Army and the Royal Air Force and their families, including anyone who has completed National Service - no matter how long they may have served.
As the charity continues to support the Armed Forces community, our partnership with SSAFA has two primary elements; raising money for them and raising awareness for the life-changing work they do.
We will be running various events and selling items to raise money for SSAFA. We aim to bring you regular updates about SSAFA’s work, showcasing personal stories by users and signposting ways you can get support if you need it.
So – whether you want to sign up to a breath-taking sponsored skydive or put your fitness to the test with a heart-pumping fun run or even donating the proceeds of a delicious bake sale – join us in getting involved and help SSAFA continue to support the Armed Forces community.
