Working in partnership

How your company can work with SSAFA

Why choose SSAFA?

We are the oldest national tri-service charity, helping more than 67,000 members of the Armed Forces community each year. We are experts at adapting to the changing needs of our Armed Forces – having done so for over 132 years – and this has helped us understand the unique demands of service life.

Our work with organisations and businesses is on both a regional and national level. Because we operate on military bases and in counties across the UK, your employees can be assured that their efforts are making a real difference in local communities up and down the country.

In addition to formal charity partnerships our Special Events offer excellent business networking opportunities, many of our Challenge Events suit corporate teams and we are very happy to work with companies on volunteering opportunities.

Email our Central Office in London at to enquire about national partnership opportunities.

How your company can get involved

We understand the importance of a mutually-beneficial working relationship, and value employee engagement very highly.

Your company might wish to consider funding a specific SSAFA project instead of employee fundraising (and vice versa), or work with us on a more strategic level, prioritising support through gifts in kind, skills sharing and volunteering. In any case, we would love to hear from you.
