    SSAFA Somerset are actively recruiting for a number of volunteer roles across the county.

    Could you make a difference to your local Armed Forces community? In our community there are men and women who fought hard for us who may now be struggling. We want to be there for them and we are looking for inspirational people willing to spare some time to give back to those who have given so much for us. From visiting lonely veterans in their homes, providing support with homelessness, debt, or mental health, or even accessing funds for house adaptations for service men or women injured whilst fighting for their country, the work our SSAFA volunteers do is truly life changing.
    A Service background is not required and role specific training will be provided. If you would like to help please contact Lt Col Adrian Stone JP using the contact section above.
