Volunteer with the Armed Forces Charity SSAFA

SSAFA, the UK’s oldest military charity, supports the Armed Forces, veterans and their families. “Any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.”

With several different volunteering roles available, there are many reasons to volunteer and spend your time helping others.

Everyone will have their own reasons to get involved.

For some it will be about giving back to their community, others might want to share or develop their skills, and some people may wish to connect and meet new people.

Volunteering can give you a renewed sense of purpose, new friendships and a new outlook on life. Studies have even shown that volunteers are generally happier and healthier than their non-volunteering peers.

SSAFA invests in volunteers including providing training and induction to prepare you for your role.

This will be either face to face, online or both. You will have access to an online library of e-learning modules to allow you to continue developing your skills and knowledge throughout your time with SSAFA.

Once in your role, SSAFA offers guidance and support, both from fellow volunteers and employees; there is always someone who can answer a question or give some advice.
