Help with the loss of a loved one

If you lose someone who has previously served in our Armed Forces, or you are ex-Forces and you lose someone, then SSAFA is committed to supporting you during your bereavement.

Everyone needs different support when they are grieving. If you need emotional support, our volunteers can be there to listen as you come to terms with your loss. If you are struggling with finances or your personal circumstances change following your loss, they can look for ways to assist you with practical challenges and may be able to get you help with the financial costs associated with your situation, such as moving house.

Sometimes the people who help most are those who have been through the same experiences. SSAFA Support Groups is a community of Forces families and individuals all facing similar challenges who help each other and offer mutual support.
