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.

Half of each years’ cohorts have suffered physical injury, and half suffer from hidden wounds. Because each of our veterans required different levels of support and encouragement, we have created a needs-based, occupation, training, and employment programme, which the veterans joined following the ski trip or by contacting the organisation.

We have recently opened a veteran-specific pain management programme in conjunction with King Edward VII Hospital in London. The charity also supports the research programme with King Edward VII into veterans’ mental health for Cobseo.

WAY is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It’s a peer-to-peer support group run by a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through.

WAY was founded in 1997 and now has more than 2,800 members across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. WAY aims to provide peer-to-peer emotional and practical support to young widowed men and women – married or not, with or without children, whatever their sexual orientation – as they adjust to life after the death of their partner.
