Royal Observer Corps Benevolent Fund

In November 2017, the Royal Observer Corps Benevolent Fund (ROCBF) will be absorbed into the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

Royal Observer Corps Benevolent Fund

The Royal Observer Corps Benevolent Fund previously provided assistance to former members of the Royal Observer Corps in need. This support will now be offered through the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Indeed, as they will be classified as members of the RAF Family, former ROC members will be eligible for support from a much wider range of support than the ROCBF was able to provide.

The Royal Observer Corps stood down from its duties in 1995 after 70 proud years serving in war and peacetime. Many thousands of men and women – more than 200,000, in fact – gave valuable service over that time. It is estimated that there are still some 60,000 former members eligible for support. Their dependants may also be eligible for assistance.
