This is SSAFA

The UK's oldest national tri-service 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.

Our Strategic Objectives

Our strategic objectives set out our priorities at SSAFA and how we go about achieving them. They underpin our key processes as we work together to provide the ever important specialist services and practical, emotional and financial support to our Forces and their families.
