About us

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. In 2020, our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 79,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts, and their families. SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. And we are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us

We want our Armed Forces (both Regular and Reserves), veterans and their families to know they can depend on SSAFA for support now and for the rest of their lives. Our values mean we are committed, practical and understanding.

Our Mission

We exist to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity.

Our Vision

In recognition of their service to the Nation, SSAFA works to ensure that the needs of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families are met in an appropriate and timely way.

We are determined to be there for everyone who needs us but we can only do it with people like you on our side. Your support and generous gifts will help us to make a huge difference in the lives of those in need.

Thank you so much for choosing to be a SSAFA supporter and making sure the charity can continue to be there for all.
