SSAFA provides lifelong support to men and women in the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the British Army and the Royal Air Force, and their families. We also work with veterans of all ages to help them settle into life and work outside the Forces.
Our support covers both regulars and reserves in the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the British Army and the Royal Air Force and their families, including anyone who has completed National Service. They are all entitled to lifelong support from SSAFA, no matter how long they have served.
Several of our branches offer Drop-Ins for Veterans, their families and carers. The Drop-Ins are run primarily by volunteers and enable Veterans to meet, have a tea and reduce their feelings of loneliness as well as to meet organisations that could provide vital support. SSAFA representatives also attend a number of other Drop-In centres around the country.
