Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund - Social Engagement Worker
Moving to a new location can be very disruptive and it may take time to establish yourself and develop new networks. In addition, a change in circumstances, such as deployments, having a baby or starting a new job can result in people feeling isolated.
Your RAFBF Social Engagement Worker is here to help you connect you with your local community. They can support you in finding local clubs, activities and workshops as well as help you access additional services offered by the RAF Benevolent Fund.
This service is open to all serving personnel and their dependants.
