Volunteer to help UK Armed Forces with SSAFA

Volunteer with us

Support our Forces in your local community.

Volunteers are at the heart of our work with the Armed Forces family. Meet inspiring people, gain some confidence and learn new skills as part of our volunteer network across the UK and on military bases around the world.

Volunteer in your community

Most of our volunteers support ex-service personnel and their dependents living in their community. If you live near a military base then you can also help our current Forces.
