What makes SSAFA unique?

SSAFA understand the unique demands of service life, whether it's on UK soil or overseas. Support is available for people at any stage in their military career; from the youngest recruit to the oldest veteran - no one's service is ever forgotten. SSAFA have more than 4,000 trained volunteers who provide personalised, face-to-face support to those in their local area.

Their trained welfare advisors and volunteers work with each person to find out exactly what they need. Once they have assessed what is required, they will help the individual or family access the support they need. This may just be someone to listen to them, but, more often than not, we access financial assistance from statutory and military benevolent funds or foundations that we work with. In addition, they will signpost you to other charity partners who can give much needed assistance to help people get their lives back on track.

Whatever they're facing - from debt or addiction to mental health problems - our Forces and their families can rely on SSAFA and our personalised support to help them through it, for as long as it takes to get that person's life back to where they want it to be.

When anyone in our Forces family finds themselves in need, SSAFA is the charity they can turn to. Whether it's financial, practical or emotional, we provide the right kind of support, ensuring independence and dignity is protected at all times.
