Volunteer for SSAFA

We're looking for volunteers in Sussex

For more than 130 years, SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has been supporting our service men and women, veterans and their families. Debt or homelessness; physical injuries, addiction or mental health struggles; relationship breakdown or bereavement:

Volunteers are at the heart of our work with the Armed Forces family. Our network of more than 5,800 trained volunteers provides practical and emotional support for serving personnel, veterans and military families across the UK and worldwide. In 2017 alone, SSAFA worked with than 73,000 members of the Armed Forces community, helping those who risk their lives to protect us to lead independent lives with dignity.

Can you spare some time to support SSAFA's vital work with the Armed Forces community? You can meet inspiring people, gain confidence and learn new skills as part of our volunteer network across the UK.

“I was struggling to get by before I was put in touch with SSAFA. My life is so much better now”. We have so many stories from individuals who have been helped by SSAFA. The work our volunteers do is incredible - but it's not just the people we help that feel the positive effects, it also makes a huge impact on you, as a volunteer. Watch the video in the link below to find out why so many have dedicated time for SSAFA.
