Governance of SSAFA
We are governed by a board of Trustees who make and approve SSAFA policy. They oversee our Chief Executive and his Executive team who together look after to day to day management of the charity.

Everyone involved in the governance of SSAFA is dedicated to ensuring that our Armed Forces, past and present, get the best possible support.
Our Trustees are all volunteers who give their time and expertise to the management of SSAFA. They have ultimate responsibility for directing SSAFA's affairs and ensuring we are solvent, well-run and that we meet our objectives.
All Trustees are also members of the Council and meet regularly to discuss the charity's activities and progress.
