SSAFA Forces Help has been serving the Armed Forces and their families for well over a 100 years and their work is as vital today as it has ever been.
Welcome to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help. SSAFA Forces Help is immediately available to support you and your family whether you are serving at home, overseas or in an operational environment. SSAFA provide support for the serving men and women in today’s Armed Forces and for those who have served - even if it was only for a single day. We also care for the needs of their families and dependants. Last year alone, their professional staff and trained volunteers gave assistance to more than 50,000 people. SSAFA helped to make a real difference to many lives. Housing related needs can present both practical, emotional and welfare issues and these form a significant and important part of SSAFA’s role. They offer advice and assistance to those eligible for our help, ranging from disabled ex-Service people and their spouses capable of independent living, separated or estranged families looking for temporary housing. The Stepping Stone Homes provide temporary accommodation for separated families and offer them ‘breathing space’ and time to reflect. They are open to women, with or without children, who are serving, ex-Service or dependants of Service or ex-Service personnel in need of somewhere to live. For more information please visit Stepping Stone Homes page. SSAFA provide a Health and Social Work services on behalf of MOD in most overseas establishments and in the UK for RAF personnel. These are high quality, professionally staffed and managed support functions.
