SSAFA - The Armed Forces Charity

The MoD has contracted SSAFA to provide the RAF with a Personal Support and Social Work Service in the UK. We provide a professionally qualified Personal Support and Social Work service throughout the UK to all serving personnel (regular and reserves), and their family.

Our service is independent from the Chain of Command. With your consent we work alongside RAF Command and within the RAF community. It is our service's aim to support you to maintain family stability, enhance personal welfare and empower you to independently access the support systems and networks you are entitled to.

Anyone can refer themselves to SSAFA. You can make contact with our service by any of the ways below. Our trained staff are ready to listen and help.
