Volunteer for SSAFA

Join our volunteer network in providing life-changing support to the Armed Forces community.

Help us be that trusted source of support for serving personnel, veterans, and their families.

Our network of volunteers are at the heart of our work, enabling us to reach serving personnel, veterans and military families across the UK and worldwide.  

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. You’ll have the chance to meet some truly inspiring people, with stories you’ll never forget. You’ll also gain new skills and experiences, but most importantly, you’ll make a difference to the lives of those who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve our country. 

We understand that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person and their family – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.
