  • Why volunteer for SSAFA Hampshire?

    Well hopefully this story will help you decide ......

    This is just one way that SSAFA helps the military family in Hampshire.  Meet William, a 90-year old WW2 veteran and widower from Winchester.  William has lived in the same house for 60 years and enjoys independent living.  Whilst William is reliant on family members for household chores his reduced mobility had placed a lot of pressure on family members to essentially lift him up and down the stairs of his house.  To assist William's situation, Winchester City Council (WCC)) approved a grant to fund a Stair Lift however William really needed help with his share of the costs.  SSAFA Winchester quickly sourced donations from The Rifles and The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Military Aid Fund to help William and the chair was fitted.  Williams is pictured here sitting proudly at the controls of his new stair lift!  With support from SSAFA and military funding, William now continues to enjoy the independent living he so cherishes with the support of his family, safe in the knowledge that the stairs are no longer an issue.  Thank you for your service William and best wishes.

  • South Downs 100 mile Challenge raising funds for SSAFA, 17-24 September 2017

    Couple raising funds for SSAFA

    Paul Kentish, a SSAFA Basingstoke volunteer is raising funds for SSAFA by walking 100 miles along the South Downs Way over the period 17 – 24 September 2017. Paul will be accompanied by his wife Sue. Team Kentish have been carrying out some training in readiness for their walk and are very much looking to the challenge. Paul will be using the walk as a great awareness opportunity for SSAFA and coincidentally Paul and Sue’s arrival in Eastbourne at the end of the walk is also their 40th wedding anniversary so it’ll be a double celebration! If you want to know more about Paul and Sue’s story and are able to help with donations please visit Paul’s JustGiving page : and help him reach his target for such a fantastic cause.

  • Thank you Allied Office Machines

    Local Firm donates £700.00 to SSAFA Hampshire

    SSAFA Hampshire warmly welcome Allied Office Machines, Hampshire-based specialists in Ricoh copier and print technology, as our latest SSAFA Friend in Hampshire. Francesca Girardelli, Representative of Allied Office Machines said: ‘We are delighted that Allied Office Machines are now an official SSAFA Friend in Hampshire, joining organisations including Hampshire NHS Hospitals Trust.’ ‘Looking forward to the year 2018, this will have a real significance for the nation and the Armed Forces as it will mark the centenary of the end of WW1 and the whole Team wanted to help as we know what a significant difference the charity makes to Armed Forces personnel on a daily basis.’
    At a meeting on 22 August 2017, Mr Steve Drayson, the Managing Director of Allied Office Machines presented a very generous donation of £700.00 to our Chairman, Mrs Patricia Lyons. The funding received from Allied Office Machines will be used to directly support SSAFA’s work with the military family in Hampshire. Great stuff – thank you Allied Office Machines!

  • Hampshire History Hunters

    A new experience for SSAFA Hampshire!

    In a first for SSAFA Hampshire, we were invited by the Hampshire History Hunters to attend their Dig in Stubbington on 20 August 2017. HHH raise funds for H4H and Combat Stress and we were grateful for the opportunity to meet a great bunch of people including colleagues from Help For Heroes and Combat Stress. Above all it was good to see a SSAFA stand at such a different type of event. We had fantastic engagement with those who had time to pop by the stand and a fabulous £118.88 was received in kind donations including £50.00 from Adrian and Andy, the co-founders of Hampshire History Hunters. SSAFA Hampshire are really looking forward to our next dig!

  • Thank you Thruxton Motorsport Centre

    SSAFA Portsmouth supporting local Reservists and their families

    SSAFA Portsmouth attended the 106 (Yeomanry) Regiment Royal Artillery Open Day hosted by 295 (Hampshire Yeomanry) Battery Portsmouth on 8 July 2017. The weather was fantastic and just right for a fun packed day. Tracey Blake the Portsmouth Divisional Secretary brought her recumbent trikes along and donations were made for trike rides and a fabulous overall amount of £106.67 was raised in donations to SSAFA. Another wonderful day for SSAFA supporting our Reservists and their families. Pictured are SSAFA Caseworkers Kerry and Heather and her son Connor.


We are recruiting!

SSAFA the Armed Forces charity within Hampshire are actively recruiting for a number of volunteer roles across the county.

Volunteers play a crucial role in delivering every aspect of SSAFA's work - from getting out and visiting people to raising money in local communities and making sure that people know we are here to help. We recognise that it is often the little things which make the most difference but our teams need to be ready to tackle complex problems too.

As a SSAFA volunteer, you'll be there to make sure that help and advice is always close at hand for our veterans, those serving and their families. We need volunteers across Hampshire in roles that include: Caseworker, Mentoring, Publicity Officer, Fundraising Officer, Visitor or Helper. A service background is not required and role specific training will be provided.

If you are able to support the military family in Hampshire please do read our Volunteer News in our Resource Section and contact Noel McCleery at for further information.
