The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen And Families Association - Forces Help

Registered Charity Number: 210760

SSAFA is a charity that provides practical support and assistance to servicemen and women, veterans, and their families, every day of the year supporting more than 50,000 people.

We understand that your time in the Forces can have an impact, now and in the future. But the challenges everyone faces are different, so whatever the problem, we’ll find a way to solve it.

The history of SSAFA is the history of the men and women of Britain’s Forces and their families.
The charity was formed in February 1885 by Major James Gildea who wrote to The Times appealing for funds and volunteers to look after families left behind. In a period of three months, the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Families Association was born. Since the charity supported millions of people, and millions more are qualified for help.
SSAFA provide lifelong support to anyone who has ever served – or is currently serving - in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force.

The charity operates in the UK and globally, providing health and social care staff services for the Forces and their families, including British Forces Germany. Their devoted teams of doctors, nurses, social workers and health visitors work closely with the military, partner organisations and SSAFA volunteers in local communities.
