SSAFA has been serving the Armed Forces community for more than 130 years. We want our Armed Forces (both regular and reserves), veterans and their families to know they can depend on SSAFA for support now and for the rest of their lives.
Our network of Branches are located all across the UK (and some overseas), so that we can respond to the local needs of the veteran community.
Our Service Committees operate at a number of Navy, Army and Air Force bases in the UK and abroad.
On the following pages you will hear directly from some of our volunteers as they speak about their experiences.
Afghanistan veteran Jason Wheeler, 43, served 15 years in the Army. He was medically discharged in 2013 suffering from PTSD and depression and became increasingly isolated, shunning contact with the outside world and hoarding rubbish in his flat. When he was burgled in 2015 it proved to be a turning point as his SSAFA caseworker, Bill, helped him to look to the future.
