Support the SSAFA

Would YOU like use your skills and expertise to give something back to help our heroes?

Time is precious, it is the most valuable thing to give away, yet a couple of hours of your time a week/month could change the life of a veteran or current member of the Armed Forces community

SSAFA is proud to be the UK’s oldest military charity and its support reaches around the world.

We have almost 7000 volunteers – military and non-military – who, last year alone, helped 57,000 people; be they serving personnel, reservists, veterans or their families through our myriad of support services. From casework, befriending, fundraising and welfare advice through to social care, housing, domestic abuse and bereavement support, adoption services and respite care; these are just a few of the amazing services that SSAFA provides. We have other specialist services including Prison In-Reach and services for the Homeless.

At SSAFA, we recognise that it is often the little things which make the most difference but our teams need to be ready to tackle big problems too.

This is where you come in….no matter where you live, we know that your skills and experience will make a difference to veterans and serving armed forces personnel and ensure they receive the help, support and guidance needed at a crucial time in their life. With a SSAFA Branch in every county, as well as volunteers in over 70 military establishments in the UK alone, someone nearby will know of SSAFA.

We are proud of all our volunteers and know that, as part of the Probation Service, you will have had excellent training, expertise and life skills to contribute hugely to the SSAFA Family. Such is the demand for our help, a particular recruitment need is for case work volunteers to join the 4000 plus we have already.

If you are interested in giving a little of your time, you can go to www.ssafa.org.uk/volunteer, you can even see all about us on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SSAFAForcesHelp
