This is SSAFA

This is SSAFA

The UK's oldest national military charity

We've been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families for 130 years.

Our vision

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.
