SSAFA responds to Op PROSPER

Commenting on today’s launch of Op PROSPER, Julie McCarthy – Director of Volunteer Operation for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity and who attended the launch at the RAF Museum London – said:

“SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has a long history of bridging that gap for service leavers as they transition from military into civilian life, and in 2023 alone, our Mentoring service – delivered mainly by volunteers – helped more than 1,300 personnel, which is an incredible number.

“And so of course SSAFA welcomes the announcement today of Op PROSPER.

“We look forward to seeing its implementation and what it will mean for UK Armed Forces as they leave one career and progress into another, and we’ll be paying special attention to how Op PROSPER delivers to vulnerable and early service leavers.

“These men and women, sometimes leaving years before they wanted to and before fully developing their skills and experience, often face the greatest challenges going into Civvy Street. SSAFA works particularly closely with them and they – as with all UK Armed Forces – deserve the same levels of support as all other personnel.”
