We offer cover for individuals and organisations who have a link to the Armed Forces community. Our Business cover is very flexible and we will work hard to ensure we can meet a wide range of needs, some of which may well be non-standard for many insurers.
As a Mutual we are owned by our Members. Because we don’t have shareholders who expect to be paid dividends, any surpluses belong to Members and can be used to re-invest in products and service and support the wider military community.

The Military Mutual supports charities and causes that are important to the Military Family and its supporters. We also provide free legal defence services to serving and former members and reservists of the United Kingdom Armed Forces facing charges under the Armed Forces Act 2006 or any person in a position of command in the United Kingdom Armed Forces defending a claim in the United Kingdom Courts for negligent acts and or omissions made in the course of their military duties.

Families of service personnel move around frequently and it can often be tough to put down roots or make new friends, particularly when loved ones are away for long periods of time.

Research shows that singing in a choir helps to alleviate stress and contributes to an improvement in isolation, anxiety and depression. The Military Wives Choirs therefore have a vital role to play by bringing women in the military community together to sing.

As a registered charity, the Military Wives Choirs is now made up of a network of 75 choirs and more than 2300 members based across the UK and in British military bases abroad, including Cyprus, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Choirs are tri-service and not just open to wives of serving personnel – anyone with a military connection can join, empowering women from across the military community.

Every new posting for women in the military community is as daunting as it is exciting, but knowing that you have a choir to go to in your new location where you know the songs and even some of the people can be a real lifeline. That’s why, whilst each local choir has its own identity, all are run in a very similar way with shared music, a fun and friendly ethos and lots of ‘cross-network’ projects and activities.

The Military Wives Choirs is an independent charity and subsidiary of SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. As part of the SSAFA family, the Military Wives Choirs work side by side SSAFA’s mission to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity as a charity run by, for and with women in the military community.

By supporting the Military Wives Choirs, you are helping women in the military community to sing, share and support one another and feel stronger together.

We bring women in the military community closer together through singing.

Our members help one another through the bad times, celebrate the good times and all of us sing our way through it together.

We welcome women, from serving personnel’s partners to veterans’ wives, from those who work in their local military community to those who serve in the military.

Wherever we are in the world, the choirs give each of us a chance to make a difference where we live.
