SSAFA is a charity that does whatever it takes to get things done. We provide practical support and assistance to servicemen and women, veterans, and the families of both, every single day of the year.
We provide lifelong support to those who are serving or have served in the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines or the Royal Air Force, and to their families. Founded in 1885, we’re extremely proud of our long-standing heritage and of all the work we do with inspiring people from South Yorkshire, across the UK and around the world.
Opening times: 10.00-12.00
Telephone number: 07483 214 925
If you’re unable to reach us, you can contact Forcesline on 0800 731 4880 between the hours of 09:00 and 17:30, Monday - Friday. If you need immediate help any other time, please contact Veteran's Gateway on 0808 802 1212.
By joining the Veterans Together Network we can help you to get involved with projects and activities in your local community. For instance cookery classes, music sessions, gardening and art/history projects where you can create something, commemorate your time in the Armed Forces and share your story with others. You will also get the opportunity to join our existing well-being groups, develop your own or be sign-posted to community organisations that will meet your needs and open up your social circle.

Right now, there are RAF veterans near you who are lonely and isolated. As a volunteer, you could step in to change that. It won’t take much of your time and it’s a great way to use your skills, give something back and feel good.
