Helper – SSAFA

About this organisation

SSAFA (The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) is a UK charity that provides lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents. Anyone who is currently serving or has ever served in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force and their families, both regulars and reserves, is eligible for their help.

About this opportunity

SSAFA Helpers provide support to local SSAFA branches so that the service to veterans and their families can run smoothly. Perhaps you could help out at an event, take care of some office admin or give a talk about SSAFA?
We have peak times throughout the year when we need extra volunteers. Whether you enjoy organising behind the scenes or being out meeting the public, we need people who can offer some time on a flexible basis.
