Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land partners with SSAFA

16 March 2020

In a move reflecting an ongoing commitment to the Forces community, Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL) has selected SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity as their main charity partner from 2020.

Funds and awareness raised from the partnership with RBSL will help SSAFA continue the vital work it carries out supporting the entire Armed Forces community, past and present.

The partnership is set to raise funds for the charity with a series of activities spread across the year. The team at RBSL will be joining SSAFA in celebrating Armed Forces Week in June, as well as taking part in a variety of challenge events and volunteering opportunities.

RBSL is a new joint-venture business dedicated to military vehicle design, manufacture, and support.  RBSL has a proud heritage of working with the Armed Forces, having designed and delivered almost all of the British Army’s armoured vehicle fleets as well as providing in-service support.

RBSL was launched as a new joint venture company by BAE Systems and German defence firm, Rheinmetall, in July 2019.  RBSL has used this opportunity to launch a Community Investment strategy for the new business, selecting a new partner to support with fundraising, sponsorship, and employee volunteering.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity is most grateful to RBSL for their generous support of our vital work. This partnership will enable us to make a difference to all members of the Forces community this year, when in need.

- Sir Andrew Gregory, Controller, SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity
Many of our employees, including myself, are veterans of the Armed Forces, so SAAFA’s mission and values are close to our hearts. We are very familiar with the positive impact of SSAFA’s work, so it is a great source of pride to announce this partnership.

- Peter Hardisty, Managing Director, RBSL
