CESSAC has been operating amenity centres for serving members of the Armed Forces and their families in establishments at home and abroad for over 125 years. It branched out into managing sheltered housing for retired ex-HM forces people and their family members in southern England over 40 years ago through its sister organisation CESSA HA. Both organisations are managed from the Head Office in Portsmouth and share the website. The CofE in each title simply reflects the ethos of the founders and Directors – delivery has always been to those of all religions and none.
