SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885.

Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 85,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts, and their families.

SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person.

We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.

We run a 4 week drama activities project each May. This, at the request of our Veterans, leads to the tour of a play devised by the Veterans together with the actors, both professional and volunteer drama students.
Most of the Veterans we work with have mental health issues such as PTSD, and we have considerable success in improving their lives.
We also run weekly drama workshops which have a strong sociable element to them. This means that we can provide support for our Veterans throughout the year, and Veterans who cannot cope with a 4 week commitment can still be involved. We will be working with schools in the Tayside area to create short scenarios that we will perform to the schools in order to raise discussions about mental health issues.
We work in a way that revives skills that our Veterans already possess: courage, a sense of family, communication skills, a sense of humour, focus on a task, team work etc – skills that are in fact all common to drama work. We then add in the creative and imaginative context of the work and staff. All of this takes place in a safe and secure environment that we take time to build.
We work in partnership with Legion Scotland, Veterans First Point, Combat Stress, Step Together, Help for Heroes Band of Brothers/Sisters, Dundee Council and the Dundee and Angus College.

We’re constantly adapting our approach to best suit the needs of those who come to us for support. We provide the following programmes:
Therapy – bespoke activities and requires the careful combination of medical practitioner, equine expert, the individual and our horses.

Learning – projects under this programme assist both adults and children. They focus on developing life skills, values and building confidence and character.

Rehabilitation – deliver support to those rehabilitating from a range of issues. Current projects are focussing on addictions (drugs, alcohol and gambling) dependency, crime and behavioural issues.

Recovery – these programmes support those in recovery from anxiety and depression, grief, domestic abuse and isolation issues. The demand to support this latter group has significantly increased as a result of Covid-19.

Sport and Recreation – We support active lifestyles and the benefits they have on health and well-being. Therefore we make our equine centres affordable to all who wish to use them. We support the NHS in their delivery of a holistic approach to health and well being and the social prescribing of activities.

Firm Base – This programme supports our equine centres which provide the charity with a firm base from which to operate. The centres become vital welfare hubs which link together many families coping with isolation and welcome newcomers to the communities.

Virtual Equestrian Centre – thanks to the generous support of Sport England, Tedworth Equestrian’s ‘Virtual Equestrian Centre’ initiative uses a virtual platform to tackle inequality of opportunity and participation in equestrian activity. We aim to break down barriers, improve accessibility and work toward the goal of enhancing the wellbeing of the Armed Forces Community and the local communities in which the Armed Forces are based. The platform includes interactive zoom sessions and pre-recorded video content, tailored to the demands of equestrianism, and will be accessible to everyone online.

Equine Therapy Courses – thanks to funding from the Wiltshire Community Foundation and The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, The Armed Forces Equine Charity will work with Warrior Equine and Horseback UK to deliver four new equine therapy courses in 2021 that will help 40 people who are facing severe mental and physical health challenges. Attendees will work with the horses loose in a round-pen, building trust with the animals through body language, emotional control and stress management – all vital skills that can be translated into everyday life.
Veterans Polo – thanks to the generous 2 year Grant granted in May 2019 by The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and co-funded by Tedworth Equestrian, the Veterans Polo Project aims to foster a sense of belonging among the veterans community. Delivered by Tedworth Park Polo Club, memberships range from social to corporate, accommodating all abilities and ambitions.
