Be there

Support our Armed Forces Community this Christmas with just £10


SSAFA has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Forces and their families since 1885, so when the unthinkable happened, Mandy Small knew SSAFA would be there.

After a proud career in the military, her husband Chris struggled to adapt to civilian living and tragically took his own life, leaving Mandy and their son Jamie alone and grieving.

An advert on Facebook prompted Mandy to contact SSAFA. From then on, her SSAFA volunteer caseworker, Sue Cross, was there every step of the way, helping Mandy source funding to cover funeral costs and arranging bereavement counselling for Jamie.

In Mandy’s words, “I’m not sure what we would have done without her - you just never think it will be you that needs help."
