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.

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.
Supporting armed forces
The County Council is a proud supporter of armed forces in Nottinghamshire. We have a long standing relationship with the local regular and reserve units, as well as the veterans and cadets.
We also bring together councillors, officers and representatives from the armed forces and military civilians charities to work on activities and issues.
This is led by Councillor Keith Girling who is the Armed Forces Champion.
"We should never forget the sacrifice and commitment shown by the men and women who serve and have served the nation, we are committed to supporting the whole armed forces community," Councillor Girling said.
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.
