Every year, SSAFA help more than 73,000 people…
…from the Forces family get back on their feet. Support is there for people at any stage in their military career; from the youngest recruit to the oldest veteran – no one’s service is ever forgotten.
All their support services are designed to meet the specific needs of the Forces community and are run by SSAFA employees and teams of volunteers. When anyone in the UK’s Forces family finds themselves in need, SSAFA is the charity they can turn to for help.
Additionally, With the centenary of the end of World War One upon us , SSAFA are curating an online library of memories.
if you had a relative that served in the Great War then please share their story and pictures. To find out more and be part of their centenary commemoration, please visit our site
Our 1st good cause
In keeping with our humanitarian aims, our first film has helped raise a sum of money for our first good cause, run by a very dedicated chap by the name of Trevor Palmer - his good cause helps disabled people in disaster struck regions of the world. Its called ResponsABLE Assistance.
Sadly, although lots of aid-help / money pour into these areas, the last people to receive help are the disabled. plus of course in a disaster, more people become disabled !
He is currently engaged in raising enough money to ship a container of mobility equipment to Kenya and distribute the contents to assist disadvantaged disabled people, young and old, so they can live more dignified, independent and comfortable lives. In rural Kenya there is not a welfare system as we have here.
Imagine the fact, that many disabled people in remote locations never leave their homes.
