Why do we need you?
We’ve been supporting the Armed Forces community since 1885. Our clients come from all backgrounds and age groups and may have served in WW2 or in a more recent conflict like the Falklands or Afghanistan.
There are SSAFA branches throughout the UK and overseas who support local volunteers to deliver services to veterans, serving personnel and their families.

• Signposting and partnership working: Liaising with Central Office and Specialist Services teams to ensure access to specialist support where needed e.g., Mentoring.
