Why Volunteer?

At SSAFA we have been providing support for our Armed Forces and their families for over 130 years, and understand the difference a helping hand can make to people's lives. 

We want to grow our family of Volunteers across Scotland, so we can reach more people and give back to those who have given so much for us. If you can spare your skills and a little time, we can offer the training and support you need to make a real difference in people's lives. 

From shaking collection tins to visiting lonely veterans at home, offering your know-how on social media or marshalling your excellent organisation skills, there are so many ways you can join us - you can find your nearest branch here.

Meet inspiring people, gain some confidence and learn new skills as part of our volunteer network across Scotland.
